For our next holidays at home installment, I headed down to Bar Stories on Haji Lane and met up with owner and bartender extraordinaire Dave Koh. To help you with your home entertaining, Dave has walked us through how to make the perfect gin sour for your holiday guests.
I've taken one of Dave's master bartender classes and it was so packed with useful tips and information. Watch the full video to learn about the right ingredients, prep and tools you need to recreate this classic cocktail at home. You can also find the recipe and steps below!
Jigger or shot glass for measuring
Fine mesh strainer and hawthorne strainer
Microplane or grater for zesting lime
1 1/2 oz (45 ml) gin
3/4 oz (22.5 ml) fresh lime juice, strained (freshly squeezed, not bottled!)
3/4 (22.5 ml) oz simple sugar syrup (make with 1:1 parts castor sugar and cold water, instructions below). Can be substituted with other sweeteners like agave syrup
1/2 oz (15 ml) egg whites, blended and strained
Fresh lime zest and angostura bitters for garnishing
Hope you'll enjoy this cocktail with your guests and have a wonderful holiday season at home.
