Spencer

Spencer cocktail with gin, apricot liqueur, bitters, and orange juice

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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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!
