Oaxacan Ice Water

Oaxacan Ice Water cocktail with mezcal and grapefruit bitters

We’re huge fans of the cocktail magic happening at the historic Hotel Congress bar in dusty Tucson, Arizona – so we were over the moon when we saw this recipe pop up in Imbibe magazine from their barman Aaron DeFeo.

Mezcal is a natural partner to grapefruit, but it’s still pretty surprising that a couple dashes of grapefruit bitters is all you need to bring such a lovely balance to the smoke.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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!
