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.

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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
