Squeaky Wheel | Cocktail Party

Squeaky Wheel

If a standard Negroni just isn’t hitting the spot anymore, if you need a funkier, smokier flavor to get you going, look no further than the Squeaky Wheel, a coffee-mezcal twist on the classic from Nicholas Bennett of Cedric’s at the Shed in New York City.

Mezcal and coffee liqueur bring a roasted, smoked flavor, enhanced by the spice of the bitters. Bennett calls for Angostura bitters, which are lovely – but we’ve also enjoyed it with spiced chocolate bitters. An unexpected splash of amaretto is the perfect bow on top, softening the edges just a touch.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
