Tabard

Tabard cocktail with tequila and sherry

We’re huge fans of every drink mixologist Chantal Tseng comes up with, and the Tabard – developed for Washington D.C.’s Tabard Inn – is no exception.

Tseng’s drinks tend to focus on unexpected flavor combinations, and often include sherry – an underappreciated ingredient that’s just starting to gain traction in mixological circles.

Oaky aged tequila and sweet, smoky Drambuie don’t seem to have much in common, but the sherry smoothes over any rough edges and the result is eminently quaffable.

Tseng uses Amontillado sherry, a medium-colored dry aged variety characterized by nutty, faintly-salty flavors.

Instructions

Stir all ingredients (except the orange peel) with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Twist the orange peel over the drink and tuck it in the side along with a spring of thyme.

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.
