Mad Monk Milkshake (Difford's)
This was one of my really first adventures into creamy cocktails. It was and still is one of my favorite cocktails ever. It is smooth, really easy ot drink, and frankly just fun.
Sours are aptly named drinks. Their flavour comes from either lemon or lime juice, which is balanced with sugar.
Sours can be based on practically any spirit but the bourbon based Whiskey Sour is by far the most popular. Many (including us) believe this drink is only properly made when smoothed with a little egg white.
Sours are served either straight-up in a sour glass (rather like a small flute) or on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass. They are traditionally garnished with a cherry and an orange slice, or sometimes a lemon slice.

Sweet n sour - frothy with an almond buzz. Three dashes (12 drops) of Angostura bitters help balance the drink and add an extra burst of flavour
Devil's Share (Difford's)
This cocktail is really smooth on the toungue because of the maple syrup. The citrus from the lemon and sugar from the maple syrup give a great sour flavor profile. One of my favorites, mostly because of the maple syrup.
Dopo Cena (Difford's)
Under the white head lies a dessert cocktail with aromatic cherry and marzipan flavours.
Not your typical daiquiri, it tastes just like when you bite into a ripe white peach in the middle of summer.
