Trinidad Sour

January 4, 2022
Trinidad Sour Bitters Lemon Juice Rye Whiskey And Orgeat Syrup Cocktail

This unorthodox cocktail was created by Giuseppe Gonzalez at the Clover Club in Brooklyn in 2009. The Trinidad Sour is unusual in its heavy use of bitters, a whole one and a half ounces of Angostura bitters. The combination of bitters, lemon juice, rye whiskey, and orgeat syrup creates a uniquely textured but deliciously balanced drink.

Sours belong to one of the oldest original cocktail families. They’re mixed drinks with a base liqueur, citrus juice, a sweetener, and often an egg white. In this recipe, the bitters act as the liqueur and it deviates from the typical egg white found in sours. For a more conventional sour, try the Whiskey Sour or the Pisco Sour.


.5 oz RYE
1.5 oz BITTERS, Angostura
.75 oz LEMON JUICE, Fresh is best
