White wine apéritif

Bottle of white wine apéritif for cocktail recipes

Wine apéritif are usually fortified wines with added malaria-fighting power from quinine, derived from the bark of the Peruvian Chincona tree.

Many classic recipes call for a brand called Kina Lillet. It doesn’t exist anymore, unfortunately – the original recipe was reformulated to be a little crisper and less bitter, and re-named Lillet Blanc. If you’re dead-set on getting that original flavor in your Vesper, Cocchi Americano is generally regarded as the closest substitute.

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.
