Zoom

Zoom cocktail with cognac, sweet cream, milk, and honey syrup

If cats drank cocktails, the Zoom is what they’d order at the bar. It’s a gentle, simple dessert drink that manages to meld cognac and cream without being cloyingly sweet.

The Zoom comes to us from 1934’s The Artistry of Mixing Drinks by Frank Meier. It is traditionally served with a dusting of chocolate powder, but it’s just as good with chocolate shavings, a drizzle of chocolate syrup on the inside of the glass, a few drops of chocolate bitters – or heck, just serve it with a chocolate bar!

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
