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.

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.

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.
