Foghorn

Foghorn

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.

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!
