Sloe Gin Fizz

Sloe Gin Fizz cocktail with gin, sloe gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and sparkling water

The Sloe Gin Fizz is an old drink that picked up a bad rap, likely due to the ubiquity of knockoff sloe gin that was common in the US until recently. Real sloe gin is made with English blackthorn sloe berries macerated in gin, and in the last decade it’s become much easier to find it across the globe.

PUNCH, a web magazine devoted to cocktail culture, took the classic recipe and modernized it, replacing half of the sloe gin with regular ol’ gin and including the sometimes-optional egg white as standard. It’s the perfect fix, and the resulting recipe is as delicious as it is beautiful.

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.
