Long Hello | Cocktail Party

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
