Apricot Sour

Like so many sours, most notably the Amaretto Sour, the Apricot Sour relies heavily on the sweetness of the liquor to balance lemon juice. And it is about as simple as a sour can get. Not the most potent of this category, but there's no worry over egg whites. My one stipulation is to use a sour glass and not a cocktail glass. The proportions just don't warrant the big cocktail glass.
  • 2 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar syrup
  • lemon slice
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail (or sour) glass. Garnish with the lemon slice.
