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!

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
