Dear Prudence

Dear Prudence cocktail

According to PUNCH magazine, Joaquín Simó at NYC’s Pouring Ribbons calls this recipe “eminently quaffable,” something he devised as a fruity, easy crowd-pleaser.

Despite its broad appeal, there’s a lot to this drink. Fresh grapefruit juice does something wonderful with the rosé tonic wine (Simó uses Lillet Rosé), bringing out a flavor akin to an actual rose.

This drink should be double-strained through a fine mesh strainer, unless you don’t mind the raspberry pips.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and double-strain into a tall ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge and a raspberry.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
