Gin Sour

Gin Sour cocktail with gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup

The Gin Sour might be the oldest entry in the sour family of cocktails. It’s a wonderfully flexible template that went on to birth an entire taxonomy of tart, tasty tipples.

Whenever we lay out hands on a fancy new bottle of gin, we mix up a Gin Sour with it. The lemon and simple syrup are a beautiful base for gin’s botanical flavors, and it’s always an adventure to try it with an interesting new gin. We love it with the rose flavors of Hendrick’s, or the woody scent of a barrel-aged gin.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
