Bishop

Bishop cocktail with light rum, red wine, lime juice, and simple syrup

The Bishop is a classic hailing back to at least 1935, when it was documented in The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book. It’s a rum-wine sour, essentially – as weird as that sounds, it works wonderfully in the glass.

Purists would have you believe that only a fine red Burgundy can be used in a Bishop, but we’ve found it to be a wonderful way to stretch out the last bits of any bottle of red wine you have laying around. The exception to that would be wines with a strong “peppery” taste, like Shiraz. The pepper flavor is just too much for this delicate balance, overwhelming the rum and lime.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

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.
