Blue Dahlia | Cocktail Party

Blue Dahlia

Blue Dahlia vodka and blueberry cocktail

We found this fruity delight in Tipsy Texan: Spirits and Cocktails from the Lone Star State, bartender David Alan’s homage to the spirits culture of his home state. It’s a wonderful read – doubly so while sipping a Blue Dahlia. Alan recommends Tito’s Vodka, a Texas staple. It would also be lovely with a floral gin.

There’s a lot of herb and berry material in this drink, which is great for flavor but not so great for actually straining into a glass. This drink should be double-strained through a fine wire mesh strainer to remove bits and pieces. If you’re using a cobbler shaker, you may want to pour into a large cup after shaking, before putting it through the mesh strainer; the fruit and herb pieces tend to block the holes in the cap of the shaker.

Shake all ingredients with ice and double-strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist, a sprig of basil or mint, or some fresh blueberries.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
