4 am Sour, Spring is for the Eggs..

4 am Sour is for the late night workers…

This creation came after working a busy saturday night at the bar. I didn’t get home until 4am, so I decided to make myself a rum sour. The cocoa simple syrup came from a previous competition and the cinnamon on top created an amazing aromatic experience.

2 Parts Appleton Estate Reserve rum

1 Part cocoa simple syrup *

4 dashes Bittered Sling plum & rootbeer bitters

1 organic egg white

juice of half a lemon

Combine all the ingredients in a tin and dry shake, add ice and shake, double strain. Garnish with cinnamon.

*Cacao simple syrup

2 cups water

3 cups water

1 Tbsp cocoa

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp whole cloves

1 tsp mexican vanilla

 

4 am Sour

• Full Pink Moon – April This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.

• Full Flower Moon – May In most areas, flowers are abundant everywhere during this time. Thus, the name of this Moon. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon.
