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.

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.
