Gin Sour

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 like Citadelle.

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!
