Hoop La!

Hoop La cocktail with cognac and apricot liqueur

This is one of those drinks that goes back so far, it’s had a million different recipes attached to the moniker. While we usually do the dirty work of choosing the best recipe for you, our faithful drinkers, we hew to the superior wisdom of Hebug, a reddit user who prepares a classic cocktail every week (or so). Most of the original recipes call for Cointreau (triple sec) as the sweetener, but Hebug’s experiments – which we were compelled to replicate, in the name of science – reveal a much better drink with the substitution of apricot brandy. We’ve selected that as our preferred version, but you can still make a wonderful Hoop La! with triple sec.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
