Vanilla Sour

Vanilla Sour cocktail with vanilla vodka, lime juice, vanilla syrup, egg white, and aromatic bitters

We discovered this fantastic sour on Reddit’s /r/cocktails community, where a user (thanks, T!) let us know that it came from Tess Posthumus, Dutch mixologist extraordinaire and author of the book Cocktails (Masterclass). Out of all the vanilla-vodka sours we’ve tried, this one is far and away the best of the bunch. It’s a one-note drink, but it plays that note so very well.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry-shake all ingredients first without ice, then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

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.
