A typical sour cocktail, this Vodka Sour combines the delicious sweet-tart taste of sweetened lime and vodka, topped with frothy egg-white.

A simple, refreshing highball – showcasing the sweet smooth taste of Deep South Premium Vodka.   Sweet and sour flavours, and a touch of spicy bitters with a festive froth says  the party is on!    

The foam in a sour cocktail comes from first “dry shaking” the ingredients without ice to emulsify them and produce a smooth silky foam. It is thought that a better foam is obtained with ‘dry shake’ than is the case with a ‘wet shake’ where ice is added.  


  • 50ml Deep South Premium Vodka
  • 25 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 20ml of simple syrup (or to taste)
  • 2 dash Deep South Aromatic Bitters
  • 1 Egg white
  • Lemon slice and Maraschino cherry to garnish
  • Ice

To make

  1. Add all ingredients except ice to a cocktail shaker and ‘dry shake’ for 30 seconds to build a good foam.
  2. Add ice to shaker and ‘wet shake’ to chill.
  3. Strain cocktail into an ice-filled highball glass.
  4. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a cheeky cherry.
