Barrymore Room

Barrymore Room cocktail with bourbon, sweet vermouth, lime juice, simple syrup, egg white, and strawberry

Brad Farran’s Barrymore Room is a twist on the Clover Club’s namesake cocktail, rejiggered with a bourbon base instead of gin and strawberry in place of raspberry.

It’s a real winner: refreshing, juicy, fluffy, and eminently sippable. Muddled strawberry and egg white (or aquafaba) create a ridiculously smooth, velvety texture, while lime juice and bourbon (Farran recommends Elijah Craig 12 Year) cut through the sweetness and keep the drink grounded.

Having trouble measuring out such a small portion of egg white? Try beating it a little first, before you pour it into your jigger or measuring cup.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry with simple syrup in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake without ice. Add ice and shake again (this technique is called a “dry shake”). Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
