Daddy Don’t Make Dinner

We don’t know the story behind the name of this drink from Laura Johnson at You & Yours Distilling Co. in San Diego, but we love it almost as much as we love the crisp, bright flavor and jewel-toned ruby-violet color.

Muddling the berries enough to get all the juice out will necessarily smash them to bits, so you may find it’s difficult to pour the drink from your shaker. A wire-mesh strainer is the best tool for the job here; strain the drink into a large measuring cup and then pour into the glass to avoid a big purple mess.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle blackberries in shaker. Add vodka, lemon, honey syrup, and ice and shake the living daylights out of it. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into an ice-filled tall glass. Top with sparkling water. Garnish with blackberries and a freshly-slapped sprig of mint.

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
