Straw Dog

Straw Dog sour cocktail with fresh strawberry, scotch whisky, blanc vermouth, lemon juice, simple syrup, and grapefruit bitters

The Straw Dog is a rare strawberry cocktail that isn’t overly-sweet; the single muddled strawberry provides a wonderful freshness not typically found in scotch-whisky drinks. It’s a masterful interplay of flavors, and we’d expect no less from its creator, the brilliant Thomas Waugh, of Death & Co.

Waugh calls for Compass Box Asyla, a mild, blended scotch. We’d stick with blended scotch rather than a big smoky single malt; it’s even lovely with the more muted flavors of Japanese whisky.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry in a shaker. Add the rest of the ingredients and ice, and shake well. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a fresh strawberry.

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.
