Striptease

Striptease cocktail with absinthe, salt, mezcal, blanc vermouth, lime juice, soursop (guanábana) nectar, and agave nectar

The Striptease is a brilliantly creative concoction by Yana Volfson, beverage director at Cosme in Manhattan.

It is incredibly fragrant and flavorful, with notes of smoke and flowers and tropical fruits and herbs. Blanc vermouth is a delicate ingredient, with its light floral notes – but it still manages to shine in the Striptease, against the big smoke of the mezcal and the tropical funk of the soursop nectar.

Ingredients

Instructions

Start by dipping the edge of a short glass in absinthe, then rolling it in the salt. Add ice to the glass – preferably one large cube or sphere. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice, and strain into the glass.

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.
