Blue Dahlia

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.

Instructions

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.

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.
