Calvados Cocktail

Gaz Regan dug this recipe up from the jumbled, weird Jones’ Complete Barguide from the 1970s. Lor’ bless him for it, because he took the opportunity to significantly improve upon the original.

Calvados is a special type of apple brandy, made in or around France’s Normandy region. This drink really should be made with real calvados, but apple brandy or applejack will do in a pinch.

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.
