Infante

Tequila is such an underrated ingredient in cocktails. Few recipes meet the funky, vegetal undertones of the stuff in a way that brings out the best in it.

That’s where the Infante comes in. The nutty, floral flavors of the orgeat and orange flower water and the dusting of nutmeg are just the kick-in-the-pants that the staid old Margarita template needed to become new and fresh. It’s just the sort of thing we’ve come to expect from master mixologist Dale DeGroff, who contributed this recipe to his wife Jill’s book Lush Life: Portraits from the Bar.

The name is an homage to Pedro Infante, the great Mexican actor and musicians whose songs are still crooned by mariachis the world over.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
