Restraining Order

Restraining Order cocktail with tequila and Aperol

This clever drink by bartender Colin Shearn from Jason Wilson’s excellent book Boozehound is worth making just so you can tell people you’re serving them with a Restraining Order. Ha! Shearn calls for Aperol, but Campari would add a nice bitter note if that’s your thing.

The orange peel is a critical part of the drink’s flavor profile, so we’ve included it in the ingredients list here (unlike most garnishes, which we generally consider optional).

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir the first three ingredients with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Twist the orange peel over the drink, and tuck it into the side of the glass.

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.
