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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
