Susina Sour

Susina Sour cocktail with plum brandy (slivovitz), orange curaçao, gin, lemon juice, and honey syrup

The Susina Sour, from Nostrana in Portland, Oregon, was the first cocktail we had that really turned us on to the potential of plum brandy. It imparts a dry, fruity richness to this sour, and is perfectly complemented by citrus and juniper.

Nostrana uses Clear Creek Distillery’s Blue Plum Brandy, a local favorite. We’ve also tried it with our favorite Serbian slivovitz, and it’s a gem either way.

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.
