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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
