Apple Daiquiri

Apple Daiquiri cocktail with light rum, lime juice, apple liqueur, and simple syrup

The daiquiri recipe – rum, lime, and a touch of sweetness – is one of the most popular templates for mixologists to riff on, and for good reason. It’s a well-balanced sour that stands up to the addition of new flavors, and the Apple Daiquiri from John Deragon in The PDT Cocktail Book is a perfect example.

You’ll need an apple liqueur with some backbone. We’re huge fans of Berentzen Apfelkorn, or really any German apple schnapps. But it would even work with a lowbrow Apple Pucker-type schnapps, though it’d be a good deal sweeter; if you go this route, you may want to pull back a bit on the simple syrup.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
