Good Humor

Good Humor cocktail with fresh strawberry, genever, bourbon, strawberry liqueur, lemon juice, orgeat, vanilla syrup, and heavy cream

Good Humor is an ice cream company that produces many a tasty treat, and queen among them is the Strawberry Shortcake ice cream bar. Death & Co’s Brad Farran set out to reproduce this peerless desert, calling on genever for its malty cereal flavor, and strawberry liqueur for its candy-berry sweetness (you could use strawberry syrup instead, in a pinch).

Farran’s original recipe used both jonge and oude genever, with the latter making up a third of the total. We’ve tried it with just a jonge genever, too, and it’s perfectly tasty, although the aged stuff does indeed contribute to a more realistic interpretation of the ice cream bar.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake vigorously. Strain into a large short glass filled with crushed or pebble ice, and garnish with a fresh strawberry.

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.
