Don Gorgon

Inventor Richard Boccato of Los Angeles’ Bar Clacson named this drink for a title given to high-status Caribbean crime bosses. Somehow, it’s fitting – the Don Gorgon is tough and bracing, with funky flavors from the cachaça and a touch of tropical sunlight from the brown sugar syrup (Demerara syrup, ideally).

Boccato calls for Aperol, and that’s what we stuck with. You’d have to be a real bitter-lover to want to make it with Campari or Gran Classico, but if that’s your jam you’d probably love it.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
