Brooklyn’s Finest

Brooklyn's Finest sour cocktail with vodka, ginger syrup, lime juice, dried lavender, and white pepper

Brooklyn’s Finest is a bright, bracing lavender-ginger sour that was once served at the now-defunct Brooklyn Central Pizza restaurant.

Typically, a lavender cocktail calls for lavender syrup or lavender bitters – but the Brooklyn’s Finest takes things in a new direction, adding dried lavender flowers to the shaker for a rapid infusion of flavor and a gorgeous pink-violet hue.

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.
