One of the all-time, if not the all-time greatest cocktail of all time. This drink can substitute any spirit, you can have a gin sour, or a rum sour, or any other damn sour. You’ve probably had some version of this drink, whether you knew it or not. We’re immensely proud how good our Single Malt Whisky is in a classic sour.
- 30ml lemon juice
- 15ml sugar syrup (1:1 ratio of sugar and water, if you feel like getting fancy, try some brown sugar)
- 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
- 15ml egg white
Combine all the ingredients, dry shake (no ice) as hard as you can, add ice and shake again. You can also try the reverse shake, where you flip that on its head. Shake with ice, strain and shake without. But whichever school you belong to (and both produce great effects), you’ve got to put your back into it. You’re shaking it up, not rocking it to sleep. The purposes of shaking are many: to combine, to chill and to emulsify that egg.
