Kräuterlikör

Kraüterlikör cocktails

Kräuterlikör is the child of a grand European tradition of drinking bitter liqueurs made with local herbs and spices to settle the stomach, much like the Italians and their amari.

Despite the name, not all Kräuterlikör is German; Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and even America have all made fine contributions to the style.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

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!
