This apricot pickle whiskey sour cocktail gives the traditional whiskey sour recipe a beautiful new sweet and sour twist with the addition of intensified fruit and spice in apricot pickles.

Pickles are a great way of preserving seasonal fruits and vegetables and also of intensifying flavours with spices. Cocktails make for a fantastic way to use up pickle brines.
The flavours of the whiskey sour recipe are here balanced with spiced sweet and sour apricot pickle brine, apricot pickle, sweetness from honey whiskey, rich apricot from De Kuyper Apricot brandy and a garnish of spiced pickled cherry and a subtle sweet lemon burst with urban green farms micro lemon balm.
These apricot pickle whiskey sour cocktails are a great aperitif being very welcoming and especially delicious with honey cinnamon stars biscuits.
