EARLY EVENING PICK-ME-UP
The rum sour is a terrific drink, punchy with a balanced sweetness and acidity. For that delicious smooth texture use an egg white or, for a vegan alternative, use aquafaba.
- 50ml Pure Golden Rum
- 25ml fresh lime juice
- 12.5ml Maple syrup
- 1 free-range organic egg white or 25ml aquafaba
- small round coin of lime peel
Combine all of the ingredients apart from the lime peel in a cocktail shaker and give them a dry shake, then add ice to the shaker and shake again, hard, for around 10 seconds.
Double-strain into your chilled glass and gently rest the lime garnish on the foam.
For a vegan version of the cocktail, simply substitute the egg white with aquafaba (the drained liquid from a tin of chickpeas). It makes a surprising wonderful foam when shaken well.
