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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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!
