Spaceface

Spaceface cocktail with blanco tequila, pineapple syrup, lime, honey, and creme de menthe

Crème de menthe might seem like an odd pairing for pineapple and lime, but just a touch of it makes for out-of-this-world refreshment. Case in point: the Spaceface from Julia McKinkey at Chicago’s Young American.

It’s a bright, crisp drink just perfect for a hot day. The pineapple is faint, but lovely, meeting the vegetal notes of tequila in a union of freshness. The star here is really the garnish; the drink should offer a noseful of fresh mint from the giant bouquet tucked into the glass.

Ingredients

Instructions

Begin by muddling the honey with lime wedge in the bottom of a shaker until the juice is released. Add the mint and lightly muddle again, just enough to release the oils without tearing the leaves. Add the remaining ingredients and ice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and garnish with a huge bouquet of fresh mint.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
