Black Russian

Before Lebowski, there was Perle Mesta – Ambassador Mesta, that is. In 1949, a Belgian barman whipped this up in honor of the visiting US ambassador to Luxembourg, cementing coffee liqueur’s place among the pantheon of “liqueurs you can put in vodka.” If you have one the zillions of flavors of regrettable dessert flavors available these days, try a half-and-half blend of regular vodka with the flavored vodka, and make up your own goofy “Something-or-other Russian” name for it.

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!
