Division Bell | Cocktail Party

Division Bell

Division Bell cocktail with mezcal, Aperol, maraschino, and lime juice

The Division Bell is everything we want from a mezcal sour: tart, sweet, smoky, and lip-smackingly delicious. The recipe calls for Aperol, one of the sweetest and most accessible bitter citrus apéritif on the market. We have a feeling that the more bitter options – Campari and its ilk – would probably overpower the delicate balance of flavors.

The drink is named for the Pink Floyd album that creator Phil Ward listened to while devising the cocktail menu for Mayahuel, a San Francisco restaurant.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
