No cocktail recipe list is complete without a sour. A sour is a very simple recipe, but a real craft to make the perfect one. Sweet & sour taste with a silky smooth texture and a thick foam on top.
Sakura is the Japanese name for cherry blossom. Sip this cocktail while enjoying or reminiscing spring time.
5cl Hana Cherry Blossom
2.5cl Fresh Lime Juice
2cl Rich Sugar Sirup
2cl Egg white
Garnish: Dried lemon wheel
+ a sprinkle of dried sakura flakes
Dry shake all ingredients, shake again with ice, fine strain and serve over ice in a tumbler style glass. In the picture we have used a Kimura handmade Japanese glass known for its minimalistic design and ultra thin quality glass.
Rich Sugar Sirup:
Boil 1 part of water and dissolve 2 parts of sugar in it. Keep stirring until completely dissolved and let cool down.
Dry shake is a technique used when working with egg white in a cocktail. It is done by vigorously shaking without ice cubes in your shaker to whisk the egg white (note: the better you do this, the better your foam will be). After dry shaking, shake again with ice, this will cool and dilute the cocktail for the fresh & balanced flavour.
