Gingerly

Gingerly cocktail with ginger liqueur, genever, apple brandy, lemon juice and Maraschino

Despite its name, the Gingerly – from Boozehound author and spirits columnist Jason Wilson – isn’t actually all that gingery (gingerous? Gingeresque?)

Rather, the ginger liqueur plays a supporting note to the funky, malty flavors of genever, an older Dutch ancestor of today’s modern gin. Apple brandy, maraschino and lemon juice round it all out, resulting in a tart, elegant homage to an apple-ginger pie.

A ginger garnish goes far in upping spicy ginger flavors of the drink; a coin of fresh ginger on the rim is superb, as is a piece of candied ginger.

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!
