Simple syrup

This isn’t usually an ingredient you’d buy; we’ve seen it for sale, but it’s so easy to make that it’s silly to shell out your hard-earned cash. Just boil equal part sugar and water together until it’s clear. Let it cool and pour into a handy vessel like a condiment bottle or mason jar.

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.
