Old Tom gin

Old Tom gin, an ingredient used in classic cocktails

Old Tom is a vintage style of gin, noted for its sweeter, less-botanical profile. It’s a mainstay in many classic cocktails, but disappeared during Prohibition. It might have stayed locked in the vaults of time – had cocktail historian David Wondrich not convinced the folks at Ransom Spirits to begin distilling it anew, kicking off a modern craze for the stuff.

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!
