Commodore

Commodore cocktail with bourbon, crème de cacao, lemon juice, and grenadine

The Commodore is a lovely dessert-type cocktail. We’re not exactly sure where it comes from; some recipes refer to it in the Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book of 1935, apparently not realizing that points to a very different recipe with rum and egg.

Whatever its origins, it’s well worth a sip! We like the version Jamie Boudreau serves at Canon in Seattle. Boudreau calls for Tempus Fugit’s dark crème de cacao, which doesn’t have the cloying, acrid flavor often found in brands that use caramel coloring.

Get the App

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
