Sunset at Gowanus

Sunset at Gowanus sour cocktail from Death & Co, featuring aged rum, apple brandy, yellow Chartreuse, line juice, and maple syrup

Sunset at Gowanus is a rich, fruity Daiquiri riff created by Alex Day at Death & Co. It’s named for a river in Brooklyn that was once so polluted by waste it was made a Superfund site, but which is now returning to a wilder, cleaner state.

Day calls for Santa Teresa rum for its rich, fruity character. You don’t need such a fine rum to make your own excellent Sunset at Gowanus, but you’d do well to choose one with similar characteristics to stand up to the bold flavors of yellow Chartreuse, apple brandy, and maple syrup.

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.
