Fallback | Cocktail Party


Fallback cocktail with rye whiskey, apple brandy, sweet vermouth, Amaro Nonino, and Peychaud's bitters

The Fallback is an autumn-tinged nightcap with the flavor and scent of spiced, roasted apples and plums. It’s the creation of the late Sasha Petraske, and a testament to the enduring brilliance of his mixological legacy.

We often treat rye and bourbon as somewhat interchangable; here, though, we stick with rye. Bourbon would be a bit too sweet, and the drink really benefits from the bright, peppery spice of rye whiskey.



Stir all ingredients with ice until well-chilled. Strain into an ice-filled short glass. Express an orange twist over the drink and drop in as a garnish.

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
