Welcome to the new Kindred Cocktails

We've completely redesigned and rewritten Kindred Cocktails. Cosmetically, we've updated it to modern web standards. You'll find it much easier and more complete on mobile devices. Most every feature has been retained and a few new ones added. Some features have moved to new, more logical places. And inside almost 95% of the code has been updated or rewritten. Explore. Let us know if you find anything that doesn't work as you'd expect.

If you've contributed cocktails, you'll find that our philosophy on submissions has changed. Previously we accepted recipes that weren't in conformance with our Style Guidelines. They were not published, but you could keep them in your cocktail book. All these private cocktails weren't shared, and this ran contrary to our concept of kindred -- a community of like-minded cocktail lovers. So now we accept only three unpublished cocktails at a time. Unpublished cocktails should be improved to meet our style guidelines and re-submitted for publication. Or merged into another existing cocktail. Or even deleted if not of sufficient quality. We hope this change creates a database of high-quality recipes for everyone to enjoy.

To help you keep track of your personal variation on a cocktail's ingredients, each cocktail book entry can have custom ingredients. Use the Paste Recipe button, then customize the ingredients to your liking. When you view the cocktail's page, you can see either your custom ingredients or the official ingredients.

We hope you'll enjoy the new version. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook if you'd like.

    Added the 1/4 oz lime juice - *chef's kiss*.

  • Re Mount Vernon, 4 days ago bkemp1984 commented:

    Good stuff. Used a cheaper Spanish brandy and just ran out of Pedro Ximénez but had a sweet vermouth that is Pedro Ximénez based. Also don't stock Cherry Heering to keep the bar smaller but I tried to get my brandied cherry syrup recipe to stand in for it, so poured that in.

  • Re Thyme and Thyme Again, 4 days 17 hours ago dsimsion commented:

    Great fresh chartruese forward drink. May be worth muddling the first thyme sprig in as the thyme could have been more prominent.

  • Re Autumn Sweater (Sepia), 4 days 17 hours ago dsimsion commented:

    Nice drink with a daquiri feel. Made with .75 falernum as suggested, felt about right. Used Smith & Cross though which may have been a bit heavy.

    Going a bit skosh on the lemon juice allows the cacao to come through.
