Scofflaw

Scofflaw cocktail with rye whiskey and dry vermouth

In 1923, a well-heeled Prohibitionist sponsored a $200 contest to come up with a word to describe “a lawless drinker of illegally-made or illegally-obtained liquor.” ‘Scofflaw’ won the contest, but by the next year it was the name of everyone’s favorite cocktail. Bartenders are historically a cheeky tribe, and this little story is a wonderful gem even if it isn’t true.

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.
