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.

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.
