Beijing Suan Nai

Beijing Suan Nai cocktail with vodka, amaretto, honey, orgeat, milk, yogurt, and chocolate bitters

The Beijing Suan Nai is the creation of beverage consultant Paul Mathew. It’s beautiful to behold, as white and soft as fresh snow. The flavor is creamy and delicate, with honey and almond at the forefront.

Mathew’s recipe calls for unsweetened yogurt, which adds luscious body and a slight tang. It also calls for honey – if you have honey syrup, use twice the amount to account for the additional water.

Instructions

Add all ingredients to a shaker, and stir before adding ice to ensure the honey is fully incorporated. Add ice, shake well, and double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
