Abbey

Abbey cocktail with gin and orange juice

This darling little old cocktail from the venerated Savoy Cocktail Book packs a surprising wallop, considering how easy it is to drink.

The original ’30s recipe called for a white tonic wine named Kina Lillet, which isn’t made anymore. The same company now makes Lillet Blanc, a decent substitute, but it’s a little sweeter and more floral than the original. For the most authentic taste, you’ll want to hunt down a bottle of Cocci Americano.

The Abbey makes for a lovely canvas to try out a variety of bitters. We love it with orange bitters, especially when we go half-and-half with Regan’s and Fee’s orange bitters.

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!
