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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
