Good Samaritan

Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan from Paul Rogers at Nashville’s Marsh House is a Whiskey Sour, anointed with the fragrances of faraway lands. Crisp lemon and oaky bourbon give way to a light, intriguing banana-raisin flavor that offers only the barest sweetness.

Rogers’ recipe calls for amontillado sherry, but any dry sherry type will be nice. If your sherry is absolutely bone-dry, like a Fino, you might want to add a few drops of simple syrup to compensate.

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a fresh or dehydated lemon wheel – or nothing at all but the lovely scent of the drink.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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!
