A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

From the Knowledge Vault

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 So now we accept only three unpublished cocktails at a time. Unpublished cocktails should be improved to meet our style guidelines and re-submitted for publication.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.

    Brilliant. Delicious. So many favorite things in one glass. I used Hampden 8YO and it worked great. The Orgeat and pineapple gum syrup added lots to the balance.

    This drink made Russell House Tavern the top account for Batavia Arrack sales and had a long run on the menu until around 2016 or 2017.

    Somewhat improvised with 1/2oz Plymouth Navy + 1/2oz red vermouth + 1/4oz shrubb standing in for the Pimm's, maple instead of honey, and lemon instead of orange. There's a black tea flavor coming through somehow. Very intriguing.

    Tastes like a Cosmo.

    I also quite enjoy this with an Armagnac - the extra fruit flavor plays well with the raisin of the sherry.
