Blackthorne

Blackthorne cocktail with Irish whiskey, sweet vermouth, aromatic bitters, and absinthe

This classic from The Savoy Cocktail Book, adapted by Gaz Regan in The Joy of Mixology, is essentially an absinthe Manhattan. Go very easy on the absinthe – treat it like bitters and add just a couple drops, or wash the inside of the glass with it instead of adding it to the shaker.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
