Strange Weather cocktail with gin, Drambuie, cherry brandy, orange juice, lemon juice, and agave nectar

The Strange Weather by Wisconsin mixologist Chad Doll took home the first-place prize at the 2009 Drambuie Den cocktail competition.

It is strange, indeed – Drambuie (a scotch whisky liqueur made with honey), gin, and cherry brandy aren’t often found in the same glass! It is genuinely delicious, though – the citrus juice and agave are a perfect complement to the herbal flavors of gin and Drambuie and the rich spice of the cherry brandy.

With our in-season orange and lemon, the drink came out just a tad sweet for our tastes. You may want to pull back just a bit on the agave if your citrus is very sweet.

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.
