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.

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.
