Aster Family Sour
- SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink
Rob Roy • Seattle
The predominant ingredient in the herbal Italian liqueur Cynar is artichoke, a member of the aster family. While Cynar is traditionally drunk neat or on the rocks as a digestif, Zane Harris uses it as the base for this delicious bittersweet sour.
- In a cocktail shaker, combine the Cynar, lemon juice, orgeat and egg white and shake well. Add ice and shake again. Strain into a chilled coupe, add the bitters and swirl decoratively.
