Chamomile Sour Cocktail-Raising the Bar With Jamie Boudreau

At Canon, Jamie's bar in Seattle, WA, they take pride in the sours they create each and every night. Like many cocktails served at Canon, sours are made with 2:1, rich simple syrup. As Jamie has professed in passed episodes, rich simple syrup provides not only sweetness but a great mouth feel without diluting the drink as much as a typical 1:1 simple syrup might. In the Chamomile Sour, Scotch is infused with the plentiful, calming herb to create a truly delightful, rich, yet light take on the classic sour style cocktail.


Egg white 1
Chamomile infused scotch 2 Ounce
Fresh lemon juice 3/4 Ounce
Simple syrup 1/2 Ounce (rich, 2:1)
The bitter truth creole bitters 4 Drop
Ice cubes 5 , crushed



Mix together egg white, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and shake well to emulsify all ingredients. An emulsifier or frother can be used as well.

Add ice to the shaker and shake well again.

Strain into a cocktail glass.

Apply drops of bitters to the foam. Using a toothpick through the bitters create a design as desired.


Serve and enjoy!
