Pear brandy | Cocktail Party

Pear brandy

Some extra-fancy varieties of pear brandy come in a bottle with a whole pear inside, created by strapping the bottle to the tree while the pear is still budding. You don’t need to hold out for such an elaborate bottling – pear brandy can be had at nearly any price point. Just stay away from the bottom shelf – as with most fruit spirits, the cheapest varieties are usually artificially-flavored sugar-booze.

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.

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.
