Tequila Sour

Tequila sour dry shake

Sour cocktails can be made with all kinds of basic spirits – rum, whiskey, gin, vodka. Even amaretto sour which is a very well-known sour drink! When you take a sour drink and shake it with egg whites, you end up with a soft and fluffy meringue that adds a beautiful finish like whipped cream on top of a milkshake. The reason why we dry shake when there are egg whites in a cocktail is to get better foam, but you can achieve fine foam without dry shaking.
