Trinidad Sour


Attention bitters lovers: this recipe calls for an entire ounce of Angostura bitters. We think you’ll like it.

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)
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:cocktail


Combine ingredients in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake well to chill; strain into a chilled glass.
