Apricot Sour

Apricot Sour cocktail with apricot liqueur and lemon juice

All drinks depend on the quality of their ingredients, and it’s especially true when it comes to simple recipes with only two or three ingredients.

Please take it from our hard-won experience: low-quality apricot brandy will give you rickets and lower your credit score. Look for one of the newer brands like Rothman & Winter, or use an apricot eau de vie.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a short glass with ice. You could also use a sour glass (with no ice) – it looks like a mini wine glass. Garnish with a cherry and a half-wheel of orange.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
