Cradle to the Grave

Cradle to the Grave cocktail with aged rum, artichoke amaro, oloroso sherry, allspice dram, and salt

Mary Palac at the Paper Plane in San Jose, California created this lovely sipper as an ode to the funky flavors of Jamaican rum. Palac leans into the complexity with smoky artichoke amaro, nutty dry sherry, and the rich Caribbean bouquet of allspice dram.

Palac uses a house saline solution, but since every bartender has their own mix, we just start with a very small pinch of salt tossed right in the shaker and adjust to taste.



Stir all ingredients with ice until chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a dusting of freshly-grated nutmeg.

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
