Basic Marmalade Sour

Courtesy of Scott Baird and Josh Harris, Founding Partners of The Bon Vivants

Ingredients
  • 2 oz. base spirit
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 heaping bar spoon, or scant 1 tablespoon, of marmalade (citrus flavors like orange and lemon work best)
  • ¾ oz. egg white
  • Lemon peel, for garnish
Directions

Add first four ingredients to a cocktail shaker without ice, and shake vigorously. Add ice, and shake vigorously again. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon peel.

Note: Baird and Harris also make a gin and elderflower variation of this sour by using 1.5 oz. of Plymouth gin, ½ oz. St. Germain, 1 oz. lemon juice and a heaping bar spoon of lemon marmalade.
