How to Mix Cocktails using Sour


    Let’s briefly go over some tips on how to mix cocktails using sour.

    Juices from fresh citrus are vital to many classic cocktails. However, they cause some issues when batching. The most significant problem is that fresh lemon juice, like lime juice or lemon juice, gets bitter the longer they’ve been juiced. After a few days to two days, these juices dramatically alter the drink’s taste.

    To batch cocktails with lemon juice, The best way to do it is to make it several hours before serving the drink. Also, consume the batch drink within one day to ensure the drink stays healthy and tasty.

    Although some might recommend using store-bought juices to make a batched drink, I believe that fresh juice is the best choice for cocktails, no matter if you’re making just one cocktail or 50.
