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 like Citadelle.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
