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.

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.

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.
