Commodore | Cocktail Party

Commodore

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.

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!
