I just love how a simple cocktail can look totally different with minor changing!

Take for example a Gin Sour,

  • 2oz Gin
  • 1oz  lemon juice
  • ¾oz Simple Syurp(2:1)
  • 2ds Angostura
  • egg whites

Dry shake, shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with aromatics (bitters os citrus oils)

Now, if you don’t have eggs, don’t get bothered!
When I started making cocktails for my friends some years ago, my favorite cocktail was a Daiquiri, but one day I tried making a Gin Sour without egg whites and bitters.

That was a thought bite!
The egg whites really help softening the this here, but so does the bitters!

Bitters can work together with citrus and make them more alive, so do watch your balance after putting the bitters in.

  • ¾oz Simple Syurp(2:1)
  • 2ds Angostura

Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with lemon oils.

This is really smooth, Angostura is a good host, you can meet all the guest but you know that Ango is right there bringing them together.

That’s a really refreshing sip, with lots of spices coming through.

You can also make your twist here, maybe introducing more vegetal notes with some rosemary syrup.

  • 2oz Gin
  • ½oz lime juice
  • ½oz Cointreau
  • 3ds Angostura

Shake & strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lime wedge.

Easy substitutions that lends a dry and bold sip!
Make adjustments to your taste here, maybe a barspoon of sugar syrup or a little egg white can make it more approachable.

Some recipes call for Curaçao insted of Triple Sec, I can’t tell which one is better.
Some might also say to replace one dash of Angostura for one dash of Orange Bitters.

I think this make for a drier cocktail, but a drop of Orange Bitters can take you to a next level, gotta try and reach YOUR favorite recipe!

On the theme you can also have a White Lady!

Keep it simple and delicious!
