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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
