Treacle

Treacle cocktail with dark rum, simple syrup, Angostura bitter, and apple juice

Treacle is a classic British ingredient, a dark syrup made in the sugar-refining process. Legendary London barman Dick Bradsell invented this cocktail in its honor, bringing those rich molasses flavors to the cocktail glass.

Apple juice is a rare ingredient in good cocktails; it’s usually too watery and weak to make a balanced drink. Here, Bradsell floats it atop the drink, which offers a brilliant contrast between the juice and the string dark rum beneath it.

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.
