The Bottle Club Sour Cocktail Recipe
With thousands of different bevs on site, and millions of potential cocktail combinations, you can imagine just how hard it was to choose one to crown the official cocktail of The Bottle Club. It required hours and hours of researching, tasting, mixing, and tasting a little more. Thankfully, our Head of E-commerce Tim found the drink we'd been searching for when he was in Canada, and was served this delicious twist on a New York Sour. The cocktail was that flavourful, the bartender thankfully wrote out the recipe for us on a napkin, and Tim brought the recipe back to our team.
The Sour Cocktail is versatile – whether you decide to switch up the Whisky, sour or sweet element, the end result will almost always be delicious – just remember to stick to that golden ratio of 2 parts Islay Whisky, 1 part sour and 1 part sweet (but hey, if your personal preference is different, you do you!).
If you’re after something sweeter, bourbon or brandy are both great options. Prefer a smokier sour? A scotch will be your go-to. When it comes to the sour substitution, lime is a more subtle option if you find lemon too overpowering, alternatively you can opt for a sweeter pick like orange or a more savoury choice like grapefruit. And when it comes to the egg white and no egg white debate, well, it’s completely up to you!
