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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
