Limerence

Limerance sour cocktail with gin, Aperol, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and orange bitters

We came across the Limerence on the website of Saveur, a foodie magazine. It was originally called a “Gin-Campari Sour,” but we ended up liking it more with Aperol (the sweetest and friendliest of the bitter citrus apéritif family).

After tweaking the recipe slightly (less syrup, bitters on the foam instead of mixed in), we’ve rechristened it as the Limerence. That’s a bit of psychology lingo defined as “the state of being infatuated or obsessed with another person, typically experienced involuntarily.” Replace “another person” with “cocktail” and you’ve got an idea of the way we feel about this bittersweet, super-bright, ultra-fluffy, totally-beautiful drink!

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients (except the bitters) first without ice, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Dot the foam with the bitters, and drag a toothpick around in the foam if you’d like to make a pretty design.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
