Fender Bender

Fender Bender spirit-forward cocktail with bourbon, Cynar, sweet vermouth, and maple syrup

The Fender Bender, from the Hi-Lo Diner in Minneapolis, is a charming Manhattan riff featuring the sweet touch of maple syrup alongside the smoky herbals of Cynar (an artichoke-based amaro). It’s a fresh take on an old standby, and the perfect complement to Hi-Lo’s neo-retro menu of updated 50’s diner fare.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
