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.

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.
