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.

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.
