The Sweet Taste of Victory

Spirits blogger Hal Wolin invented The Sweet Taste of Victory after taking his first sip of Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur accented with vanilla and spices. Really, it’s fantastic with any good raspberry or blackberry liqueur.

The original recipe as printed in Imbibe magazine was a bit too sweet, calling for equal parts of liqueur and vanilla syrup. We’ve scaled the syrup back just a bit to let the other flavors shine.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
