Stiletto

Stiletto cocktail with bourbon and amaretto

Fun fact: Amaretto, while it tastes like almonds, is actually made from apricot pits. Apricots and almonds are in the same family along with peaches and other stone fruit. This drink reminded us of a classy version of Southern Comfort and lime, and when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Southern Comfort was once a bourbon liqueur made from peach pits (the recipe has been changed to use artificial flavorings instead). So if you’d like to get an idea of what real SoCo & Lime used to taste like, try this cocktail; it’s the closest you’re likely to get.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
