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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
