Archangel

Archangel cocktail with gin, Aperol, and cucumber

The Archangel, by mixologists Richard Boccato and Michael McIlroy, is Spring in a glass. Aperol and cucumbers are a crisp, bright combination, bolstered by the bracing herbals of gin.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add cucumber slices to a mixing glass and muddle gently – enough to release the scent, not so much that you break it up into little bitty pieces. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass, and garnish with a cucumber slice or a lemon twist.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
