Carbonated Piston Slinger | Cocktail Party

Carbonated Piston Slinger

This is Ted “Dr. Cocktail” Haigh’s recipe, which we discovered in Gaz Regan’s The Joy of Cocktails. If you go to the trouble of keeping something like 151-proof Demerara rum around, it makes sense to have a good sloe gin – it really makes a difference.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except for the sparkling water) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass, top with soda, and garnish with a cherry and a lime wedge.

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.
