A Rose By Any Other Name

A Rose By Any Other Name cocktail with mint, Metaxa brandy, grapefruit juice, honey syrup, and rose water

A Rose By Any Other Name took second place in Imbibe magazine’s Metaxa Cocktail Competition in 2009. Invented by mixologist Lara Creasy in Atlanta, it features Metaxa, a Greek brandy flavored with rose petals and other botanicals.

Despite its origins, A Rose By Any Other Name is quite delicious with just about any type of brandy you can get your hands on. Resist the urge to increase the rose water; with or without Metaxa, it’s perfect as-is and even one more drop could take the drink from sophisticated to soapy in a heartbeat.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
