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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
