Slivovitz Sour

Slivovitz Sour cocktail with plum brandy, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and bitters

The Slivovitz Sour is a lovely plum brandy cocktail borne out of bartender Matthew Wyne’s earnest attempt to develop an appreciation for the spirit his Slovenian grandfather so loved. It’s a wonderful entry-level cocktail for folks learning to love this underrepresented Eastern European eau de vie, as the classic sour template softens its rough edges just a bit.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry-shake all ingredients first without ice, then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a few drops of bitters on the foam in a pretty pattern.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
