Monk’s Respite

Monk's Respite cocktail with gin, yellow Chartreuse, coconut water, lemon juice, honey syrup, orange bitters, and sparkling water

The Monk’s Respite is yet another fantastic recipe from the Smuggler’s Cove book, and its fascinating layers of tropical and herbal flavors make it one of our favorites in an already-outstanding collection.

Smuggler’s Cove called from Broker’s gin, a high-proof London Dry. You can use whatever gin you have on hand, but a higher-proof gin is the best option for standing up to the strong flavors of the yellow Chartreuse and coconut water.

Instructions

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.
