19th Century

19th Century cocktail with bourbon, Lillet Rouge, crème de cacao, and lemon juice

This clever riff on the Twentieth Century cocktail is the brainchild of mixologist Brian Miller.

Where the original had gin and Lillet Blanc (a white wine apéritif), Miller swaps in bourbon and Lillet Rouge (a red wine apéritif). The result is a complex, not-too-sweet sour cocktail with the faintest aftertaste of chocolate.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
