Old Town Vodka Punch

Old Town Vodka Punch cocktail with Aperol and elderflower liqueur

Elderflower liqueur – sometimes called “bartender’s ketchup” for how often it’s brought in to pump up a drink’s flavors – can sometimes overwhelm other delicate flavors in a drink. Not so here, where inventor Jean Tomaro of Chicago’s Hogshalt Hospitality tames it with the summery flavor of Aperol.

You can use Campari, if you prefer a more bitter flavor, but it won’t taste as much of a sun-melted grapefruit candy as the original recipe does.

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!
