Grievous Angel

Grievous Angel

The name is a little emo, yes – but we can forgive the Grievous Angel, because it’s an excellent cocktail with a perfect balance between woody bourbon, fragrant elderflower, and the rich sweetness of high-quality strawberry syrup.

We found this recipe from Laurent Lebac of Chicago’s Big Star bar while sifting through back-issues of PUNCH, an online magazine. It’s definitely worth a look if you’re interested in the craft of drinks!

Lebac calls for a 90-proof bourbon, but it’s not really too different in taste from regular 80-proof.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the lemon peel) with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Express a strip of lemon peel over the drink, then discard the peel. Garnish with a strawberry slice.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
