Blackthorn | Cocktail Party

Blackthorn

Blackthorn cocktail with sloe gin, sweet vermouth, aromatic bitters, and lemon peel

The Blackthorn (not to be confused with the Blackthorne, with an ‘e’) is a simple, brilliant low-proof cocktail that tastes almost like cold mulled wine. It’s named for the blackthorn berry – another name for the sloe drupes used to create sloe gin.

You’ll need a very good, very fresh sweet vermouth for this; Carpano Antica or Punt e Mes are great choices.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
