Swamp juice sour
This super sour is made with whisky and cider, sweetened with sugar syrup and turned vibrant yellow with a touch of food colouring. Don’t let the kids have all the fun – try our ghoulish drinks for a Halloween fit for grown-ups.
- Put 7-8 ice cubes in a cocktail shaker or large lidded jam jar; add 45ml whisky, 45ml cider, 1 tbsp sugar syrup, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp pasteurised egg white and ½ tsp liquid green food colouring. Shake well.
- Half-fill a tumbler with ice. Strain the cocktail into the glass; spoon in any froth left in the base of the cocktail shaker, if you like. For the garnish, zigzag green apple peel onto a cocktail stick. Balance on the edge of the glass and add a sprig of mint.
Tip: To make your own sugar syrup, put 100g caster sugar in a pan with 50ml water. Heat until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil, remove from the heat and allow to cool.
