Sumac Sour

In mixology, sours usually contain a base spirit, acid (lemon/lime) and a sweetener so, by definition, your margarita is actually a sour too. But, sumac, a common Middle Eastern kitchen spice, adds pinky-brown color and tangy, bright notes like lemon for a wonderful sour component to this tequila-based cocktail. 


For 1 Serving(s)


3/4 oz Sumac extract
1/4 oz lime juice
1 oz honey
2 oz Espolon Anjeo Tequila
Lemon peel, cherry, or sumac powder/sprig for garnish

Sumac Sour Directions

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into coupe.

Garnish with lemon peel or cherry plus (optional) sumac powder or sprig.

Optional: To make a lighter, frothier version of this drink, dry shake the white of one egg by itself in a shaker or mason jar. Add the remaining ingredients and ice and shake again, straining into a coupe. For a vegan alternative, substitute aquafaba (chickpea water) for the egg white.
