Algonquin

Algonquin cocktail with rye whiskey and pineapple juice

There are about a bazillion versions of this recipe floating around, but we prefer the one by Ted “Dr. Cocktail” Haigh – simple, delicious, perfectly balanced.

This is a simple drink, so much rests on the quality of the ingredients you use. Canned pineapple juice is perfectly fine, but fresh juice elevates it to the otherwordly. Your dry vermouth should be very fresh – no more than a couple weeks old.

We usually call for vermouth drinks to be stirred; shaking tends to make the vermouth foam up in an unattractive way. Plus, drinks with vermouth are often spirit-forward, without heterogenous ingredients that would require more effort to thoroughly mix. The Algonquin, however, should be shaken, in order to fully incorporate the pineapple juice.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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!
