Plum wine

Plum wine is a liqueur made by steeping tart plums in clear liquor (usually shochu or soju) and sugar. It’s not a true wine, as it isn’t fermented. Plum wine is popular all throughout Asia, including Japan, China, and Korea.

Some bottles include whole plums. Don’t throw them away – those booze-soaked treats are delicious!

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.
