Unnamed Cocktail #55, with blanc vermouth, aloe liqueur, lemon juice, and soda water

Unnamed Cocktail #55 is a “session cocktail” from Liz Pearce – that is, a lower-proof cocktail designed for daytime drinking or a long evening session.

Pearce’s original recipe calls for half the amount of aloe liqueur shown here, but as written our testers found it to be just a touch too tart, and couldn’t pick out the delicate aloe flavor. We suspect this comes down to the lemons. If yours are especially sweet, you may wish to try the recipe with the original proportions.

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.
