Quinine Sour Recipe
When craving a Gin & Tonic but wanting something new to try, one of our most popular off-menu cocktails, The Quinine Sour, is the perfect contender putting a sour spin on the classic Serve. The best bit about this is that it can easily be recreated at home, simply follow the recipe below.
Ingredients and Barware:
Champagne coupe, to serve
3 thin slices of Chopped Ginger
3 fresh Curry Leaves (and 1 extra, to garnish)
50ml London Dry Gin
25ml Lemon Juice
1 tablespoon Simple Syrup
3 dashes Tonic Bitters (we use The Bitter Truth Tonic Bitters)
25ml (1 part) Egg White (or Aquafaba)
- Put the champagne coupe in the fridge or freezer a little in advance to chill it.
- Take the three finely-sliced pieces of chopped ginger and three fresh curry leaves and muddle them together inside your cocktail shaker. Add the gin, fresh lemon juice, sugar syrup and tonic bitters.
- Separate the egg, and add the white to your cocktail shaker.
- Close the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 10 seconds without any ice — this will help create a good foam.
- Open the shaker and completely fill it with ice. Give it a good hard shake for another 20 seconds to chill the cocktail.
- Strain the cocktail into your chilled glass and garnish with a curry leaf resting on the foam.
