The Gin Sour’s story
The Sour is one of the oldest cocktails around. Some even say it’s where the art of mixing began – although nobody quite knows where, when or how. Cocktail legend Jerry Thomas was the first to write it down. Before that, Royal Navy sailors were probably the first to mix it. In the absence of safe water, they’d use spirits instead, adding citrus fruit to help keep scurvy away, sugar and a little water. Now, see if the Gin Sour rocks your boat.
