American Trilogy

American Trilogy spirit-forward cocktail with rye or bourbon, apple brandy, brown sugar, and orange bitters

The American Trilogy was born out of a collaboration between Richard Boccato and Michael McIlroy, then mixologists at NYC’s Little Branch. It’s a showpiece for the craft and restraint of two legendary barmen, and an homage to rye whiskey and applejeck (two quintessentially American spirits).

If you don’t have a brown sugar cube, you can substitute a white cube or a teaspoon of brown sugar.

Ingredients

Instructions

In a short glass, place the sugar cube (or teaspoon of sugar) and saturate with the bitters. Muddle to make a granular paste. Top with the rye and apple brandy, and add ice (preferably one large cube or sphere). Garnish with an orange twist.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
