Old Flame

Old Flame cocktail with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and green Chartreuse

The Old Flame comes to us from The PDT Cocktail Book, and it’s a great drink to whip out when you want to impress your guests with a bit of showmanship. We’re not really sure of the function of setting Green Chartreuse alight, but it does seem to introduce a light caramelization of the liqueur’s sugars, and the brief touch of warmth on an ice-cold drink is novel and delightful.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry-shake all ingredients (except the green Chartreuse): first without ice, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

Pour the green Chartreuse into a metal jigger, set it aflame with a match, wait a moment to allow it to heat up, and then pour the flaming liqueur over the top of the drink.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
