The weekend is upon us! You know what that means. Time to check out our Cocktail of the Week: The Trinidad Sour.
Offbeat drinks have a steeper hill to climb when it comes to attaining classic status. The Trinidad Sour, created by New York bartender Giuseppe Gonzalez, is a paradigm shifter with its base of Angostura bitters, but the drink has such a richness of flavor and an alluring quality that it has a good chance of beating the odds. This one, pictured at Whisler’s in Austin, stays true to Gonzalez’s original recipe.
- 1 oz. Angostura bitters
- 1 oz. orgeat
- ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
- ½ oz. rye whiskey (100-proof preferred)
Combine ingredients in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake well to chill; strain into a chilled glass.
