Floppy Disk

Floppy Disk low-proof cocktail with Cynar, dry curaçao, mezcal, grapefruit juice, and sparkling water

In typical proportions, the Floppy Disk from Jenner Cormier at Bar Kismet in Halifax, Nova Scotia would be a brutish drink, with smokey mezcal and earthy Cynar (an artichoke amaro) fighting for dominance. But as a low-proof drink with a small pour of those big flavors, it’s absolutely divine.

It’s not for everyone, but if you like the earthy funk of Cynar, you’ll love it. Each sip starts off sweet and citrusy, and finishes in woody smoke. Cormier calls for a dry curaçao, and we’ve also enjoyed it very much with shrubb standing in for the curaçao. Feel free to swap out the plain sparkling water for a grapefruit- or orange-flavored version.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
