Gotchford Sour

The whiskey sour is a versatile cocktail that is fun to tweek. Here is something I dreamed up one day after work.

Gotchford Sour

  • 2 oz Rittenhouse 100 rye whiskey (Bourbon would work too)
  • 1/2 oz Lemon juice
  • 1/4 – 1/2 oz Ginger sryup (I do 1/4 oz since I make my syrup with a turbinado sugar that is very sweet)
  • 2 dashes Bittermans xocolatl mole bitters
  • Float of Smith & Cross rum

Shake ingredient and strain over ice in an old fashioned glass. Float some Smith & Cross rum on top. Orange peel for garnish.
