212

The 212, from beverage consultants Aisha Sharpe and Willy Shine, is a wonderfully refreshing long drink that’s as easy to make as it is to sip.

The 212 refers to the Manhattan area code, but also to the drink’s proportions. How easy is that?

Sharpe and Shine call for Aperol as the bitter citrus apéritif, and it’s a good choice. It makes up a big share of the sweetness in this drink, and an überbitter option like Campari would make this a hard drink for most folks to swallow.

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!
