Long Hello

Long Hello cocktail with apple brandy, elderflower liqueur, aromatic bitters, sparkling wine, and nutmeg

The Long Hello, from Damon Boelte at Brooklyn’s now-closed Prime Meats, was developed for a spread in New York magazine highlighting the best wedding cocktails.

It is indeed a lovely drink for a wedding, or any occasion. It’s fragrant and delicate and not overwhelmingly bubbly. It’s also easy to make in large quantities, since it requires no fresh fruits or fiddly garnish.

Boelte calls for one of two types of Fee Brother bitters, either Whiskey Barrel-Aged or their Old Fashion Aromatic Bitters. Really, any aromatic bitters you prefer will go well here, so long as it’s woody and cinnamon-forward.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
