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.

Ingredients

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.

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.
