Laid Back

Laid Back cocktail with gin, apple vodka, pineapple juice, and club soda

The Laid Back is rapper Snoop Dogg’s riff on a classic Gin & Juice cocktail. This much-improved version comes from Snoop himself, featured on The Ellen Degeneres Show while promoting his TV show Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, co-hosted with culinary legend Martha Stewart.

Snoop calls for Ciroc Apple, a green-apple-flavored vodka. We had it with the considerably less-expensive Smirnoff Honeycrisp and certainly didn’t miss the pricey stuff.

If you have pineapple or lime flavored sparkling water, give it a spin here for a nice twist.

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!
