Saratoga Brace Up | Cocktail Party

Saratoga Brace Up

The Saratoga Brace Up originally appeared way back in 1887, in Jerry Thomas’ Bartender’s Guide. We like this updated take by Alba Huerta, owner of bar Julep in Houston. It’s rich, sweet, and well-balanced between the woody caramel of the cognac and the herbal anise flavor of absinthe.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
