Forbidden Fruit | Cocktail Party

Forbidden Fruit

The Forbidden Fruit was mixologist Aisha Sharpe’s response to a challenge from Liquor.com: how many holiday flavors can you cram into one glass? This drink is the perfect answer, and it’s so good it deserves to be drunk year-round.

Sharpe uses Pimm’s No. 1 for the gin apertif, but if you have access to any of the other varieties of Pimm’s, feel free to try them out – we’ve been on the lookout for their occasional holiday special release, Pimm’s No. 3 Winter Cup.

She also calls for Laird’s Straight Bottled in Bond Apple Brandy. If you can’t get that in your area, applejack or calvados will still produce a fine drink.

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.
