Plum brandy

Bottle of Slivovitz plum brandy for cocktail recipes

Plum brandies and eau-de-vie are a common sight in Central and Eastern Europe, and Slivovitz and its regional cousins are the most common type. Made from Damson plums, this type of plum brandy is strong and fairly dry, with a barely-floral aftertaste.

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
