A Snowball’s Chance

A Snowball's Chance cocktail with Scotch, pineapple syrup, bitters, and absinthe

We love a good offbeat holiday drink, and this Old Fashioned riff from Sam Gauthier at New York’s Boilermaker fits the bill perfectly.

Gauther brings in some smoke by bringing in scotch in place of the typical bourbon, and adds a tiki touch with pineapple syrup. A dash of bitters (Gauthier recommends Dale Degroff’s aromatic bitter) and a kiss of absinthe round out the ingredient list, coming together in a delicious glass of Christmas magic.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
