Poet’s Dream

Poet's Dream cocktail with gin, dry vermouth, and Benedictine

The Poet’s Dream is a forgotten classic from the Old Walfdorf-Astoria Bar Book, published in 1935.

The equal-parts measurements couldn’t be easier, and yet each ingredient is perfectly highlighted: the bracing bite of gin, the aromatics of dry vermouth, and the honeyed spice of Bénédictine (a sweet herbal liqueur).

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!
