Cloudy Sky | Cocktail Party

Cloudy Sky

Cloudy Sky cocktail with sloe gin, lime juice, and ginger beer (or ginger ale)

The Cloudy Sky, from the The Washington Post‘s Spirits column, is a lovely way to show off a good sloe gin, and a perfect summer highball.

You can use ginger ale or ginger beer here, but we much prefer it with the spicy bite of a good ginger beer.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
