Paradise | Cocktail Party

Paradise

Paradise cocktail with gin and apricot liqueur

The original recipe comes from Harry Craddock’s 1930 tome The Savoy Cocktail Book. Mixologist Gaz Regan polished it up a bit with improved ratios, and suggests trying it as highball too, by adding a half-part more gin and serving in an ice-filled tall glass with extra orange juice.

Fun fact: Rapper Snoop Dogg is a holder of the Guinness Book Of World Records title for “Largest Paradise Cocktail,” after presenting a 500-liter version of the cocktail at the Bottle Rock Napa event in 2018.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
