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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
