Monarch

Monarch cocktail with peach bitters and sparkling wine

What a fitting name for such an elegant drink, created by London Academy of Bartending founder and mixology scholar Douglas Ankrah. If you’re like us and somehow ended up with forty-seven bottles of bitters of every conceivable flavor, this drink is a great place to show them off. We like peach bitters here, but anything floral or fruity will likely be just as wonderful.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the mint leaves (gently) and simple syrup in your shaker, and then add all the other ingredients, plus ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail, coupé, or champagne glass, and garnish with a big leaf of freshly-slapped mint (float it right on top), or a wide twist of lemon.

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.
