Dusty Rose

Dusty Rose cocktail with cherry brandy, white creme de cacao, and heavy whipping cream

The Dusty Rose is a dessert cocktail from Dale DeGroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail. DeGroff’s recipes tend to skew sweet, and this one is no exception, with a rich flavor reminiscent of cherry pie and ice cream. With such a low proof, this one will have you watching your blood sugar rather than your blood alcohol – but if you’re looking for a tasty, creamy drink for dessert, this recipe is hard to beat.

For a slightly less-rich drink, try replacing the heavy cream with sweet cream or half-n’-half.

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!
