Vanilla Sour | Cocktail Party

Vanilla Sour

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
