Door 74

Door 74 sour by Ted Gallagher, with apple brandy, dry vermouth, lemon juice, grenadine, orange flower water, and creole bitters (Peychaud's)

Vermouth can be a hard sell for our less-cocktailian friends; many folks have only had foul-tasting, oxidized stuff from dusty bottles well past their expiration. If you’re looking to win people over to the magic of vermouth, you could do worse than the Door 74, a beautiful ruby gem from Ted Gallagher at Boston’s Deep Ellum.

Here, dry vermouth provides a crisp, intriguing backbone to flavors of apple and citrus. The botanicals play well with orange flower water and the anise notes of the bitter, while the low proof of the vermouth keeps the drink light and sippable.



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Express an orange peel over the drink and drop in as garnish.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
