Cosmonaut

Cosmonaut cocktail with gin, lemon juice and raspberry preserves

This lovely little gem from mixologist Sasha Petraske tastes like a sweet berry candy, and couldn’t be easier to make.

Petraske’s recipe calls for raspberry preserves, which give it a flavor resembling an eggless Clover Club, and a color like the Cosmopolitan the name is a nod to. That said, this recipe is fantastic with every jam we’ve tried it with; we’re especially fond of it with apricot preserves.

If the jam you use has seeds, consider double-straining your Cosmonaut though a fine mesh sieve to keep the seeds out of your teeth. And do rinse out your shaker right away – those sugar-coated seed bits have a nasty way of clinging to the walls of the shaker and showing up as unwelcome stowaways in the next drink you mix up.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
