Sloe gin | Cocktail Party

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.

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.
