Kentucky Longshot

Kentucky Longshot with bourbon and ginger liqueur

We love derby cocktails for so many reasons: they’re refreshing, easy to make, and they always seem to have the terroir of the American South. This relatively new entry from the 1998 Breeders’ Cup checks all the boxes and then some. The original recipe calls for one drop each of both Angostura and Peychaud’s bitters, but we found that overly fussy and not very detectable in the drink – it’s up to you.

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass or a julep cup filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a piece of candied ginger.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
