Although apricots are at their seasonal peak during the temperate summers months, someone in our fine nation designated a January date (January 9th to be exact) to honor this sweet and vitamin-rich fruit. So why not stir up an apricot cocktail to boot?!
One of my favorite cocktails to make at home is the classic sour for a few reasons: the flavor profile is simple, I always have the ingredients on hand in my bar, and it takes no time at all to stir up. I’ve certainly come to appreciate these qualities when stirring up a drink. I also enjoy being able to switch up this recipe with a variety of base spirits and this variant below, using apricot brandy, is no exception to that rule.
- 2 parts Hiram Walker Apricot Flavored Brandy
- ½ part Lemon Juice
- ½ tsp Sugar
