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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
