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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
