Canary Nest

The Canary Nest is an inspired wine cocktail, and the brainchild of Claire Sprouse from Sunday in Brooklyn. The spicy, rich flavors of pear brandy and cinnamon syrup elevate a simple dry white wine into something worthy of an autumn feast.

Sprouse calls for an off-dry white riesling, but any dry-ish wine white will do. Fresh-squeezed orange juice is always better, but in the Canary Nest it really makes a difference.

Lo-Fi Vermouth is used in the original recipe for its unique blend of bright botanicals. Nearly any sweet vermouth will still be lovely, but we’d steer clear of overly-assertive, peppery vermouths like Punt e Mes in the Canary Nest.

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.
