Sunflower Highball

Sunflower Highball cocktail with vodka, Licor 43, and orange juice

The Sunflower Highball has all the charm and boundless joy of a floppy Golden Labrador puppy. A nearly-forgotten classic from Dale DeGroff, it’s a simple drink with a sweet, sunny disposition and nearly no alcohol flavor (despite the fact that we’ve nudged the vodka measure up just a tad from the original, to balance the sweetness).

DeGroff calls for Licor 43, but you can use any vanilla liqueur you like – Navan and Tuaca would be lovely, for example. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, feel free to use a vanilla or dessert-flavored vodka.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
