Crimson Crane

Crimson Crane cocktail with bourbon, creme de cacao, cranberry juice, Angostura bitters, and orange bitters

The Crimson Crane, from M. Carrie Allan of The Washington Post’s Spirits column, is named for the pretty crane-shaped flower of the cranberry plant.

Allan specifically states that this recipe was designed with unsweetened cranberry juice in mind. That’s tough stuff to find compared to the more commonplace cranberry juice cocktail, and it’s much more astringent and bitter as well.

It is a very good drink with unsweetened cranberry juice, but we confess that we do prefer it with the sweet stuff. It’s confirmed delicious either way, so use whichever type of juice you prefer.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
