Mariner cocktail recipe - Cocktail Party

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.

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.
