Mariner

Mariner cocktail with scotch, cardamom syrup, pineapple juice, and lemon juice

The Mariner is a masterful blend of smoke and spice, from none other than the fantastic John Deragon at PDT.

PDT uses Compass Box Oak Cross for their scotch, a milder blend without the huge peat bog flavors of, say, a Laphroaig. If you have a Japanese whiskey on hand, that’d work just as well.

The original recipe calls for black cardamom syrup, which has a smokier flavor than the usual green cardamom – but we admit we couldn’t tell much of a difference in the versions that we tried, so use whatever cardamom syrup you like.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
