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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
