Gotham

Gotham cocktail with cognac and creme de cassis

Bartender David Wondrich was asked to create a drink for the debut issue of Gotham magazine in New York, and this is what he came up with. His recipe calls for créme de cassis, but if you don’t have it, port wine makes for a nice substitute. Generally we’d tell you to shake something with lemon juice in it, but there is very little in this drink, and shaking vermouth makes it bubble unpleasantly. We compromise between the two methods and stir the buhjeezus out of it.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
