The Tulleeho Sour - A Whiskey Sour riff


To know me is to know that I am a firm believer of the old adage
"When in Rome, do as the Romans do"
Not that one need abandon one's beliefs and tastes, but it never hurts to open your mind and try something different.
 So when in Mumbai......you get the picture.
I took the classic workhorse of the Cocktail World and gave it an Indian twist, continuing the stance. An established idea but with a slight mind expansion.
The Tulleeho Sour
Ingredients:
2 ounces Bourbon (your choice here)
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon (or more to taste) of Cardamom simple syrup
Several tablespoons of  Sugar mixed with a teaspoon of ground cardamom

Moisten the edge of a martini glass with the lemon carcass and roll the edge of the glass with the sugar cardamom mix, set aside while you prepare the drink
Place all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake rigorously.
Strain the cocktail into the glass, being careful not to dislodge the sugar rim.
  I have some fresh cherries that have been marinating in Luxardo liqueur for several months, which I use as an answer to Maraschino Cherries.
I skewered several with a Cara Cara Orange piece.
 And we're off to the Races!!
Cheers!

I found your site months ago and was so inspired. I adore the flavors of India. Would love to hear of spirits in India that we cannot get here.

Nata there are various spiris in India, that are just locally produced and distrubuted, but i am sure if they go world wide t'll be a big hit. We recently Showcased few of them in Tales of Cocktails. Spirits are as given below
1) Cashew Feni- Locally produced Goan Alcohol made with Cashew fruit
2) Kesar Kasturi- Rajastani royal spirit with predominant flavour of Saffron
3) Royal Malwin- again made in rajasthan, on very similiar lines of Fernet Branca
