Apple brandy | Cocktail Party

Apple brandy

Bottle of apple brandy, like applejack or calvados

Apple brandies can vary greatly in terms of flavor, color, and sweetness. Make sure to tweak your drink to take advantage of the type you have on hand. Be sure you have a brandy – dry, faintly sweet – and not a liqueur, which is much sweeter.

Calvados is a special type of dry apple brandy, made in France’s Lower Normandy region. It’s made in the eau de vie process, and then aged in oak casks for at least two years.

We’ll make a note when a recipe specifically calls for calvados or applejack, or any other specific type of apple brandy.

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.
