Shoot the Moon

Shoot the Moon cocktail with gin, pear brandy, cinnamon syrup, and grapefruit bitters

Shoot the Moon is a beautiful autumn-tinged twist on a gin-based Old Fashioned, from Claire Sprouse of the the Tin Roof Drink Community in New York. Tin Roof is two bartenders (Sprouse, and Chad Arnholt) who give lectures and presentations on sustainable cocktail techniques, beverage programming and more.

In Shoot the Moon, Sprouse demonstrates how easy it is to mix a cocktail without wasting ingredients or washing too many tools; the drink itself is mixed with the same ice it’s served with, and the garnish (a dehydrated pear slice) is fully edible, slowly rehydrating itself in the cocktail for a tasty treat after the last sip.

Ingredients

Instructions

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
