Sloe gin

Sloe gin is a traditional homemade spirit in the United Kingdom, where the blackthorn bush and its sloe berries grow wild. Much of the sloe gin sold in liquor stores is barely worthy of the name. In the US, the cheap stuff is made with corn syrup and artificial colors and flavorings. For a long time, that’s all we had access to – we thought we hated sloe gin! One day, we found a dusty bottle of real sloe gin in our local boozemonger’s emporium, and it CHANGED. OUR. LIVES. The real stuff is tart, juicy, rich, and bursting with the flavor of winter in the English countryside.

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!
