With the summer fast approaching we've been mixing things up on our cocktail menu with twists on old classics and some new favourites to try as well.

 

Amongst them we simply had to include the Amaretto Sour, and to celebrate summer we thought we’d share the not so top secret recipe…

 

Our version includes fresh egg white, creating a beautifully light foam on the top of the drink. Sours, as a rule, have traditionally included egg white as an emulsifier that gives a beautifully soft feel. In case you were wondering, it doesn't taste like egg either!

 

This drink is fragrant and sweet with a smooth, velvety texture; the ultimate Salcombe Sun-downer!

 

Ingredients

 

50ml Saliza traditional amaretto

25ml Fresh lime juice

25ml Fresh lemon juice

Two dashes angostura bitters

20ml Sugar syrup

One egg white

 

What to do

 

1)  Pop all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.

2)  Strain into a glass over ice.

 

Top tip

 

If you're feeling adventurous or simply don’t like the flavour of amaretto, why not try it with whiskey, gin or rum? Each gives its own unique taste and they're all favourites from our point of view!
