Saloon Man’s Sour
When the leaves start changing and the air gets chilly, we’re always looking for spicy, warming drinks. The Saloon Man’s Sour is just the ticket, with maple syrup and sloe gin coming together to create a jammy, pie-like harmony with lime and the spice of the rum. Its inventor – Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli at Craigie on Main in Cambridge, Massachussets – calls for Sailor Jerry spiced rum.
Good sloe gin is essential – if it looks like it has corn syrup or artificial colors, put it back on the shelf!
Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass.
