Description

The vodka sour is a classic sour cocktail: it’s refreshingly sweet tart with a frothy egg white foam on top! Ready for cocktail hour in just 5 minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) vodka
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lime juice (or omit)
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) simple syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 egg white*
  • For the garnish: Cocktail cherry and lemon wedge

Instructions

  1. Add the vodka, lemon juice, lime juice, syrup, bitters, and egg white to a cocktail shaker without ice. Shake for 15 seconds.
  2. Add the ice to the cocktail shaker. Shake again for 30 seconds.
  3. Strain the drink into a glass; the foam will collect at the top. Serve with ice, a lemon wedge, and a cocktail cherry.

Notes

*Substitute 2 tablespoons aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas) for a vegan variation.
