Harvest Sour

Harvest Sour cocktail with rye whiskey, applejack, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and cinnamon

The Harvest Sour is yet another fantastic recipe from Sam Ross, the mixological genius behind the Attaboy and Diamond Reef bars in New York City, and inventor of (probably) at least one of your favorite cocktails.

The Harvest Sour looks to be just a fall-tinged egg sour – but the split base of rye and applejack elevate the flavor tremendously. It’s not in Ross’ original recipe, but we sometimes like to dot the foam with a bit of Angostura or apple bitters for visual appeal and scent.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients (except the cinnamon) first without ice, then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with the cinnamon, and add an apple slice (or a fan of slices).

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
