Gin Daisy | Cocktail Party

Gin Daisy

The Daisy is a classic formula: a sour made fizzy with the addition of sparkling water. The Gin Daisy is our favorite of this ancient family; the gin-citrus-sparkle flavor is refreshing and light on a hot day.

Some old recipes call for triple sec, while others call for a fuller-bodied orange curaçao. We prefer curaçao for its richer flavors, but you can use whatever you like. Yet other recipes call for grenadine in place of an orange liqueur; we think those variants leave a lot to be desired when compared to this time-tested recipe.

Lots of different gin styles go well here; we especially like it with Old Tom gin for an authentically vintage experience, but it’s also great with aged or botanical gins.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
