Apple

Apples, an ingredient used in drinks like the Apple Bottom and Apple Sauced

Apples (and apple juice) can be difficult ingredients to incorporate into cocktails, as the subtle flavors of a fresh apple can be lost among the stronger flavors or spirits and liqueurs. We like drinks that call for the apple to be muddled in the shaker, skin and all.

Fresh-pressed apple juice is always best, but it can be difficult if you don’t have a heavy-duty juicer to make it with. If you must buy it in a bottle, look for brands with no added sugar – the juice from the bottle should taste exactly as sweet as a ripe apple, but no sweeter.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

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.
