Cocktails w/ Aperol

just bought a bottle, and i'm looking for suggestions
In Venice they drink Aperol like a spritzer; mixed with white wine and garnished with a green olive. It's great
I enjoy an Aperol Sour:
5 parts Aperol
2 parts Lemon Juice
1 part Simple Syrup
2 dashes Orange Bitters
There's a recipe on the bottle (I'm currently out of the stuff) that is good too (vodka + aperol / etc). I like it with soda water on ice too.
i had orange vodka/aperol/grapefruit juice in a bar the other night very good indeed
last night i modified the aperol sour recipe by replacing the orange bitters and simple syrup with stirrings blood orange bitters - which are plenty sweet on their own
tonight i plan on the same thing with gin added into the mix.
