212

212 cocktail with tequila, Aperol and grapefruit juice

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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
