I was recently contacted by Jack Daniel’s to see if I fancied trying out their recipe for a No. 7 Sour. If you know me, you’ll know I’m not one to turn down alcohol so my reply was a resounding YES!
Based on the traditional Whisky Sour, this cocktail is a mix of JD No. 7, Angostura Bitters, sugar syrup and lemon juice; I must say, I really did enjoy it!The JD adds a heat and smokey flavour, whilst the lemon and bitters add a sharpness. The sugar syrup then mellows this all out a little to create a really well balanced and delicious drink.
I made my own simple sugar syrup to use here. It’s really easy; just put equal quantities (by volume) of sugar and water in a pan and heat just until the sugar has dissolved. Bottle and store in the fridge.
Isn’t my cocktail shaker just gorgeous? I love it; it’s made by a company called Mason Shaker from a traditional American mason jar. You can get it online here if you want one too.
