Spruce Goose

Spruce Goose cocktail with cucumber, gin, amontillado sherry, orgeat, lemon juice, and absinthe

The Spruce Goose from Trevor Easter at The Snug in Sacramento is equal parts refreshing and savory, with crisp cucumber and gin matched up to nutty orgeat and dry amontillado sherry (a fino or oloroso will do in a pinch).



Muddle the cucumber wheels in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake well. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a tall ice-filled glass. Garnish with a fresh wheel or ribbon of cucumber.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
