Chas

Chas cocktail with bourbon, amaretto, Benedictine, triple sec, and orange curaçao

The Chas is so cool, even its name sounds laid-back and confident. It’s the creation of mixologist Murray Stenson, and named for a bourbon-loving patron at the Zig Zag Café in Seattle.

The Chas marches to the beat of its own drum, with a rare combination of two orange liqueurs, plus honey and almond flavors and (of course) a big helping of bourbon.

Stenson’s recipe calls for a crisp, bright triple sec like Cointreau, and a richer, woodier orange curaçao like Pierre Ferrand or Grand Marnier. You can play around with those a bit, doubling up on one type or swapping one out for a Creole Shrubb.

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.
