Sloe Gin Highball

Sloe Gin Highball cocktail with sloe gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and sparkling water

The difference between real sloe gin and the purple corn syrup stuff on the bottom shelf is astronomical. It’s like the difference between ketchup and a garden-fresh tomato, if ketchup also had cat piss in it. The best sloe gin is made at home, but Plymouth makes a very good bottling too.

If you have a lemon- or berry-flavored sparkling water you like, give it a spin here in place of the typical plain sparkling water.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything but the sparkling water with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass, and top with sparkling water.

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.

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.
