Plum & Cinnamon Sour Cocktail
Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 30 mins Serves: 1 person
This one tastes as good as it looks! Bursting with delicious flavour, this plum and cinnamon sour is the perfect cocktail to impress guests with at your next soiree.
- 60ml Signature Gin
- 25ml Fresh Lemon Juice
- 20ml Homemade Plum Syrup
- Small Pinch Ground Cinnamon
- Egg White
- Burnt Rosemary Garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and shake to chill. Once cooled to perfection, discard the ice and add the gin, lemon juice, syrup, cinnamon & egg white. Throw in a single ice cube and shake well to whip the egg white into a smooth, creamy froth.
Double strain into a classic cocktail glass.
For the garnish, briefly light the end of your rosemary to release the heady aromas then gently place the sprig on the delicate, foamy top of your drink.
Homemade Plum Syrup
Tangy, sweet and utterly delicious, this versatile syrup is easy to rustle up and gives a piquant fruitiness to your favourite cocktails.
500g Chopped Plums
100g Caster Sugar
250 ml Water
1 Vanilla pod, split in half
Add all the ingredients to a saucepan, bring to the boil, then reduce to a medium heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, strain the contents into a bowl and leave to cool. In the unlikely event that there’s any of this lip-smacking syrup left after you’ve gone to town on the cocktail making, store in an airtight container in the fridge.
