Grenadine Sour

| Guest post by Johanna |

Sophisticated, slightly sweet and slightly sour, here is our take on an American classic – the Whisky Sour. This elegant drink looks smashing with your cocktail attire and is easy to make without compromising on taste or glam factor.

Our Nordic Fusionist variant gets its beautiful pink shade and delicious tart flavor from the pomegranate in our Grenadine vodka, combined with sour pomegranate molasses. Pomegranate molasses is a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine, and is found in specialist shops or in the world food corner of the supermarket. If you can’t find it, it could be substituted with equal parts lemon and cranberry juice. To make the sugar syrup this recipe calls for, simply combine equal parts sugar with water over heat until the sugar dissolves.

For one drink you’ll need:

4 cl Grenadine vodka
2 cl pomegranate syrup
4 cl sugar syrup
1.5 teaspoons egg whites
3 ice cubes

Combine all the ingredients, excluding the ice cubes, in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 10 – 15 seconds to ensure that the ingredients mix and that the egg whites foam. (If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, use a glass jar for a Prohibition Era feel). When you have done this, simply add the ice cubes and shake until your cocktail shaker turns cold. Finally, strain and serve in a glass of your choosing, perhaps a tumbler or martini glass.
