Foghorn

Foghorn highball cocktail with gin, lime juice, and ginger beer

The Foghorn is essentially a gin-based Moscow Mule, and might actually predate its more-famous sibling. We’ve heard from many sources that it was originally served at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel around the turn of the last century, but it doesn’t appear in our 1935 copy of The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book. If you can find it in print, please do drop us a line to let us know!

Originally, it was likely made with Old Tom gin and ginger ale – in those days, both were less sweet than they are today. We prefer it with London Dry gin and a spicy ginger beer, but you should feel free to experiment to find your perfect blend.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
