Rites of Spring

Rites of Spring cocktail with aquavit, white vermouth, peal liqueur, oleo saccharum, and bitters

Rites of Spring is an unusually complex and beautiful cocktail from Rogan Howitt, beverage director at Good Spirits Co. in Missouri. True to its name, it doesn’t exactly taste like spring, but rather more like the promise of an end to winter. It’s warm, lightly-spiced, and has a mysterious herbaceous note from the aquavit.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the bitters) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with the bitters. Express a lemon peel over the drink, then use it as a garnish (along with a floated star anise pod, if you have one).

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
