Desert Healer

Desert Healer highball cocktail with gin, cherry brandy, orange juice, and ginger beer

The Desert Healer is a long-overlooked should-be classic from The Ultimate Bar Book by Mittie Hellmich. It’s reminiscent of the classic Blood and Sand cocktail, with gin in place of scotch and lengthened with ginger beer for improved day-drinking potential.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the ginger beer) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with the ginger beer.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

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!
