Goldmine

As age and cocktail-testing takes its toll on our livers, we find ourselves drawn to low-proof cocktails. It’s nice to indulge in the flavors of spirits and liqueurs without paying for it the next day.

The Goldmine, from Tom Lindstedt at Portland’s short-lived High Noon bar, is a perfect example of how a great drink doesn’t necessarily require a ton of booze.

Lindstedt uses Cocchi Americano, a white wine apéritif with a crisper, more bitter flavor profile than Lillet Blanc, another popular option. Both are lovely in this drink, but if you use Lillet you can expect it to be a little sweeter and a bit less flavorful.

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!
