Episode 047 - Sours are so sweet!

Hello everyone! With summertime on its way (yay) I think it is time to talk about sour style drinks. I've mentioned sweet and sour in episode 26 and I gave sour recipes in multiple episodes when talking about the base spirits but here I'm going a bit more into detail on the sour as well as compiling a bunch of sour recipes in one show.

Hope you enjoy!

Whiskey Sour
2 oz whiskey
3/4 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled sour glass or short stem wine glass and garnish with an orange wheel and a cherry.

Daiquiri

1 oz lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Margarita
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz cointreau

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed halfway with salt.

Sidecar

1/2 oz cointreau
1 oz lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Optional: rim the glass with sugar.

Midori Sour
2 oz midori
1/2 oz cointreau
1 oz lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Cable Car
2 oz Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum (Private Stock preferred)

Amaretto Stone Sour
2 oz amaretto

Jack Rose
2 oz applejack

Pisco Sour
1 1/2 oz pisco
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 small egg white
Put all ingredients into your shaker WITHOUT ice and shake very well to fully emulsify the egg. Now add ice and shake again until shaker frosts. Strain into a chilled cocktial glass. Put a few drops of angostura bitters on top of the foam and have fun making an artistic pattern in the foam by dragging a toothpick through the bitter drops.
