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.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
