Yuzu Tequila Sour

It’s Citrus Season!!  My most favorite produce season of the year!  I’ve been loading up on all the exotic citrus coming into the market, especially fresh yuzu the Japanese citrus that tastes like a mix between lemons, Meyer lemons, and clementine oranges.  They are bright, and floral, and pair beautifully with unaged tequila.

The classic sour recipe is one of my favorites, and unsurprisingly, works well with yuzu and Patrón Silver tequila.  This cocktail is brighter and more vegetal than a traditional whisky sour, and the yuzu adds a level of complexity that other types of citrus simply cannot.

When you’re picking up your Patrón, keep your eyes out for their seasonal limited edition 1 Liter bottle: it’s a festive bottle that is not only bigger, but makes for a great hostess gift.  I’ve made a neck tag you can download, print out, and give with a bottle of Silver – Limited Edition 2018 1-Liter. Happy Holidays!

Yuzu Tequila Sour

2 oz Patrón Silver – Limited Edition 2018 1-Liter
¾ oz yuzu juice (ideally, fresh)
¾ oz simple syrup (1:1)
1 egg white
2 drops orange bitters
Garnish: Yuzu twist and two maraschino cherries

Dry shake all the ingredients until thoroughly mixed.  Add ice and shake again.  Strain into a lowball glass with a large rock.  Garnish with a twist of citrus and two maraschino cherries.
