Nutty Like a Fruitcake

Nutty Like a Fruitcake cocktail with Demerara rum, spiced rum, orange curaçao, orange juice, lemon juice, orgeat, allspice dram, and aromatic bitters

This tiki twist on the familiar flavors of fruitcake comes from Mindy Kucan at Hale Pele in Portland, Oregon.

Orange and spice are always a welcome addition to our holiday cocktail menu, and Nutty Like a Fruitcake makes us think of holidays spent drinking rum with the uncles, listening to stories into the wee hours of the night.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
