Rum Sour

Rum is a perfectly acceptable base for a sour drink. The idea is to  do sours authentically--I mean in a small sour glass, not in the Old Fashioned glasses that are popular today with whiskey drinkers. This sour is very sour, with little sugar to balance out the tartness. That makes it very cooling on hot days.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. simple syrup
  • lemon slice
  • maraschino cherry
Combine rum, simple syrup and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled sour glass or small wine goblet (port/sherry glass). Garnish with lemon and cherry.
