The Story Behind The Flower Power Sour

Floating bitters atop a cocktail is always striking. In this sour, rum-based drink, pineapple juice contrasts the red bitters beautifully, both visually and on the palate. White rum works deliciously as the base, balancing bitterness and the tartness of the pineapple and lemon juice with warm toasted sugar notes. This is essentially a sour cocktail that takes all flavors to the next level.

  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
