Double Standard

Double Standard

The Double Standard is a lovely little sour from Derric Crothers at Boston’s Green Street. The split gin/rye base is unusual but inspired, offering the crispness of gin juxtaposed with the woody spice of rye. Aged gin would be nice here too, offering a little more of that oaky character.

At Green Street, they make their raspberry “syrup” as more of a puree than a sweet syrup, according to Frederic Yarm over at Cocktail Virgin, who first published the recipe. Made that way, the drink is quite dry and tart. It isn’t bad, but we prefer it with our standard raspberry syrup, since there is no other sweetener in the drink.



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

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!
