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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
