Sudachi Sour

Sudachi makes a great addition to classic lime-based cocktails like the Margarita, Daiquiri or this contemporary version of the Pisco Sour. “Sudachi boasts a lot of intense flavors,” says northern California bartender Scott Beattie, “so you don’t need a lot of it for the complexity to shine through.”

1 1/2 oz. pisco
1/3 oz. fresh lime juice
1/3 oz. sudachi
1/2 oz. simple syup (1:1)
1/2 oz. fresh egg white (pasteurized if you like)
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glas: sour
Garnish: 3 drops of Angostura bitters

Combine all ingredients, except ice, and dry shake for 30 seconds. Add ice and shake again until the mixing tin is frosty. Strain into a sour glass and garnish.
