Spencer

The Spencer is a forgotten gem from the pages of Harry Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book. It’s a small, strong cocktail that should be served in a cold, small glass.

Much of the flavor comes from the apricot brandy, so be sure to use a good one. We like the ones from Luxardo, Marie Brizard, or Giffard.

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.
