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 So now we accept only three unpublished cocktails at a time. Unpublished cocktails should be improved to meet our style guidelines and re-submitted for publication.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

    Maybe it is due to using Beefeater, but the ingredients didn't merge for me. Lots of individual flavors of the liquor without a new flavor of the drink as a whole. But I'll try again with non-Juniper forward gin and see if I have the same result.

    Thanks for handling that!

  • Re Italian Pirate, 1 day ago Sperans commented:

    I used 1oz fernet and it turns out perfect if you want a bit more fernet bitternes to counter the sweetness of falernum (I used Bitter Truth’s Golden Falernum)

    10/10

    Cut back passionfruit to 1/2, added a dash of Boker's bitters, and a teaspoon of maraschino

    I feel like gin is the wrong alcohol for this. Also agree with another commenter that it lacks another layer or more depth. For a second drink, I swapped cachaca and added some bitters, and felt that was an improvement.
