That’s Probably Him

That's Probably Him cocktail with gin and Cocci Rosa

We love the enigmatic name of this drink from Jimmy Hibbard of Chicago’s Barrelhouse Flat, and the flavor lives up to the mystery. The apricot liqueur’s sweetness brings a lovely springtime twist to the complex herbal flavors of the vermouth and apertif.

Hibbard calls for Cocchi Rosa for the rosé wine apéritif, but we’ve made it with Lillet Rosé and it’s just as wonderful. Protip: like vermouth, wine apéritif have a limited shelf life and begin to funkify after as little as a week or two in the fridge.

Hibbard also calls for a Plymouth-style gin, which is ever-so-slightly less dry than a London gin. It’s perfectly fine with London gin, but we’d stay away from complicated floral gins like Hendricks here.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
