White Witch | Cocktail Party

White Witch

This classic from Trader Vic’s Bartender’s Guide feels surprisingly modern; it’s refreshing and exotic, and the ingredients and presentation are so on-trend you’d think it was just the latest Instagram fad, rather than a 60-year-old relic of a bygone era.

Be sure to choose a flavorful, high-quality overproof rum – we like Wray & Nephew. Bacardi 151 won’t cut it here; you’ll want something genuinely tasty, not just high-octane jet fuel.

The original recipe calls for triple sec, but it benefits from a dry curaçao or Caribbean shrubb in its place to tame the sweetness. There’s plenty of sweetness to be had just from the (optional) powdered sugar garnish!

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients (except the sparkling water) to a tall, ice-filled glass. Holding a swizzle stick or long barspoon between your palms, slide your hands back and forth to swizzle the drink and gently mix the ingredients. Top with the sparkling water. Garnish with an inverted hollow lime shell, a fat sprig of fresh mint, a generous all-over dusting of powdered sugar, and a straw.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
