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

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
