Hummingbird | Cocktail Party

Hummingbird

It’s not easy to find recipes for cocktails with lavender bitters – which is a shame, since they bring such a lovely floral perfume to a drink. So we were understandably excited when Imbibe magazine published an article all about lavender bitters and the inventive bartenders who use them.

That article included this recipe for a Hummingbird, from bartender John Stanton at Chicago’s Sable Kitchen & Bar, and it’s the perfect introduction to this fragrant, delicate ingredient. The honey and orange blossom water turn the drink into a full-on bouquet, all tied together with a lemon-yellow ribbon.

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.
