The Sour originated in the late 18th century and remains a firm staple of any good cocktail menu. Villa Kennedy’s fruity, Teutonic take on the classic pays tribute to Frankfurt’s cosmopolitan flavours and can be mixed in moments.

Ingredients (serves 1)

40ml rum
20ml amaretto
20ml lemon juice
60ml apple wine (or cider)
Ice cubes


Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and add ice cubes. Shake vigorously until well mixed.

Add ice cubes to a whisky tumbler. Strain the mixture over the ice. Garnish with a slice of apple (optional) and serve.
