Summer Rose

Summer Rose cocktail with blueberries, lavender syrup, gin, and lemon juice

Lavender and blueberries are a beautiful combination, and the Summer Rose from Andy Whitehead from the Oh So Beautiful Paper blog shows off just how perfectly they work together.

We prefer lavender syrup with its natural straw-gold color, rather than syrups with purple food coloring added, because it lets the gorgeous color of the blueberries show through. Either way, though, it’s guaranteed to be a lovely drink.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the blueberries and the syrup at the bottom of your shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake well. Double-strain into a small chilled cocktail or coupe 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.
