Honeycomb, Peach & Chamomile Sour
Our take on a sour blends the smooth, spiced and toasty notes of HER Starward Honeycomb with the delicate white floral palate of Marionette Peach Liqueur along with a syrup of herbaceous chamomile cooked down with the warmth of honey then infused with the sweet, juiciness of peach. The silky, foamy texture of this cocktail also serves to uplift and allow all the individual flavours to shine with each sip
20ml Honey, Peach & Chamomile syrup
50ml HER Starward Honeycomb
10ml Marionette Peach Liqueur
8 drops peach bitters
10ml aquafaba or egg white
15ml lime juice
Freeze-dried peach powder
HONEY, PEACH & CHAMOMILE SYRUP
50g peach puree
2 chamomile tea bags
Pull it all together:
To make the Honey, Peach & Chamomile syrup, combine all ingredients except the chamomile tea in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Stir until the honey is dissolved and the syrup begins to boil. Add in chamomile tea and let simmer for 3 minutes.
Strain syrup through a fine strainer and allow to cool. If you are using the syrup provided, use 30ml of this in place of the Honey, Peach & Chamomile Syrup, Marionette Peach Liqueur, and peach bitters in the next step.
Place the syrup along with all the other ingredients except ice, in a cocktail shaker. Shake hard to cause the aquafaba to foam.
Fill the shaker with ice and shake again - hard and fast to chill but not over dilute the drink.
Strain the liquid through a hawthorn and fine strainer into a coupe glass.
Dust with freeze-dried peach powder, and enjoy.
