Apricot brandy

Bottle of Apricot Brandy for use in cocktail recipes

Apricot brandies can range from semisweet, orange-hued spirits,  to ultra-dry, crystal clear eaux de vie (like Hungarian pálinka and other classic European fruit spirits).

“Brandy” is a term without much meaning in the spirits world, truth be told – it can mean a dry, barely-sweet spirit (like apple or pear brandy), or a syrupy, thick liqueur (think cherry and blackberry brandy). In our effort to standardize terms, we generally call the dryer spirits “brandy” and the sweet ones “liqueur,” and that holds true for apricot spirits.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
