Gentian liqueur cocktail recipes

Bitter gentian liqueur made from the root of the Alpine gentian flower was all the rage in the 18th and 19th century. Its hyper-bitter flavor encourages the production of saliva and digestive juices, aiding with digestion after a big meal.

Now this classic ingredient is seeing a comeback as a cocktail ingredient, where its bitter flavor is tempered and enhanced by spirits, sweeteners and juices.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
