Sour cocktails have been popular for years and make a great addition to any brunch or spring party. Traditional sour cocktails use a raw egg white to make them frothy. Although this does pose a little concern when using raw animal products, if you use clean eggs or buy pasteurized eggs you will lower your chance of any food related illness. Think smart, clean and fresh for your eggs, and you’ll be as safe as possible!
Some popular spring sour cocktails:
Pisco sour, Whiskey Sour, Ramos Gin Fizz
