Monarch | Cocktail Party

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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

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!
