Sunflower | Cocktail Party

Sunflower

Sunflower sour cocktail with absinthe, gin, triple sec, lemon juice, elderflower cordial

The Sunflower is a bright, happy sour from the brilliant mind of Sam Ross (of Attaboy and Diamond Reef, among many other legendary establishments). The secret ingredient? Elderflower cordial, a gently-sweet syrup with a delicate floral flavor that’s a bit more pronounced than in elderflower liqueur.

Ingredients

Instructions

Rinse a chilled cocktail glass with the absinthe (or anise liqueur), and dump out any excess. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice and strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with a lemon twist or a sprig of small white edible flowers, if you’re so lucky as to have such botanical luxuries just laying around.

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.
