We want to give a shout out to the winner of our fan contest – Meredith from Tennessee. After asking some questions about Meredith’s taste profile, we created a light, fluffy, creamy version of a sour*. Try shaking this one up at home, then raise a glass to Meredith!
The Mer-Bear Sour
1.5 plymouth gin
.5 lemon juice
teaspoon pomegranate simple syrup
Crack an egg, and separate the white into an empty shaker. Add all ingredients and shake vigorously. Carefully open the shaker (pressure may build up) and add ice. Shake again, then strain into a sour glass or Delmonico glass.
*Sours belong to one of the old families of original cocktails and are described by “Professor” Jerry Thomas in his 1862 book, How to Mix Drinks. “Sours are mixed drinks containing a base liquor (bourbon or some other whiskey in the case of a whiskey sour), lemon or lime juice, egg white, and a sweetener (triple sec, simple syrup, grenadine, or pineapple juice are common).”
