South Slope

South Slope cocktail with gin, Aperol, Lillet Blanc, orange curaçao, and lemon juice

The South Slope, from famed mixologist Michael Madrusian, is quickly becoming one of our favorite summer drinks. Trendy though they are, Aperol (a bitter citrus apéritif) and Lillet Blanc (a white wine apéritif) are absolutely dynamite together.

We’d stick with Aperol for this one, as bitter Campari would take over the delicate flavors of Lillet Blanc (or Cocchi Americano, if you prefer).

This makes for a small drink, so be sure your glassware doesn’t dwarf it. We like it in a champagne coupe or Nick and Nora glass.

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.
