Saratoga

Saratoga cocktail, with rye whiskey, cognac, sweet vermouth, and Angostura bitters

The Saratoga is essentially a Manhattan, with the base split between rye whiskey and cognac (or a good brandy), for added softness and a hint of chocolatey sweetness. It’s an antique recipe, hailing from bartender Jerry Thomas way back in 1887. Originally, it was shaken – but stirred is the way to go here, since there’s no need to water down the concoction.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
