HERE WE GO A'CAROLING

The prettiest gin sour you've ever seen

The point of this drink was to bring all holiday flavors together in a beautiful gin-backed package. This starts with cinnamon. Adding cinnamon to the great pear and peach flavors of Cocchi Americano, reminds me of holiday fruits simmering on the stovetop. I reinforced this with a bit of vanilla syrup to enhance the aromatics.

Next, the pomegranate adds a bit of sourness and tartness to balance the above sweetness. With sour and sweet down, I put together a honey sage shrub to lend some savory and herbaceous notes to really round out the drink. This cocktail is bursting with flavor and hits every part of your tastebuds.
