Marmaduke

Marmaduke cocktail with aquavit, St. Germain, grapefruit juice, brown sugar syrup, and salt

We don’t think we’ll ever get tired of the canine family of grapefruit juice cocktails (the Grayhound, the Chihuahua, etc). Typically, they’re simple, refreshing cocktails – just fresh grapefruit juice, a spirit, and a dusting of salt.

The Marmaduke from NYC’s Jimmy at the James is a little more complex, with two liqueurs and a kiss of brown sugar – but it fits right in with the rest of its furry friends. It’s a great way to introduce someone to the many splendors of aquavit, a caraway spirit that works surprisingly well with citrus ingredients and tiki-styled templates.

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!
