Pairs With: Gin
Flavor Profile: Elderflower + Citrus
We think the Elderflower Sour may be a young classic cocktail, a popular alternative to the Whiskey Sour.
Pairing with Gin, this cocktail is light and floral, with a layer of botanicals coming through with every sip.
We recommend finishing this cocktail with either the traditional egg white or with a vegan alternative such as aquafaba. This will give the drink a luxurious mouth feel and a nice richness that complements the bright acidity from the citrus.
Pro tip: always express some lemon oil or drop some bitters over your foams to give the cocktail an inviting scent.
Your true cocktail awaits.
Instructions: In a cocktail shaker, combine 2 oz Elderflower Sour Cocktail Mix, 2 oz of your favorite Gin and one egg white. Dry shake to develop foam. Fill shaker with ice and shake until properly aerated and chilled. Double strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a few drops of cocktail bitters or a lemon twist.
