Aperitif Cocktails

Lately I have been ordering Negronis (1 part gin, 1 part Campari, 1 part sweet vermouth) when I go out. I like the mixture of aperitifs with hard liquor because lessens the punch of the gin -- martinis and suchlike before dinner are just too strong for this kid.

I also like the Negroni because it's an elegant, clear, not-too-sweet drink which is nice for the winter. Somehow I'm thinking of fruit-based drinks as being more summery. So I'm trying to think of other aperitif cocktails and am coming up blank. Does anyone have favorites they could share?

Thank you!
