This drink is a hybrid of a Sidecar and a Cameron’s Kick. The idea is a short, nutty sour. This plays with the flavour notes of mandarins and raisins on the palate. Palo Cortado gives a funky nuttiness, almond plays further with stone fruit, and Barrel Aged Bitters (Fee Brothers) gives wintery, cinnamon & clove notes. This was tested with Swift Bar’s house orgeat, which is a 1:1 ratio, most commercial orgeats are 2:1 so the volume will need to be reduced to 15ml in these instances.
