Flamingo Sour Cocktail Recipe

Summertime is a time for adventure, trying things you’ve never done before. We wanted to have a little fun with our whiskey sour, so … we made it pink! Pink is always in style, right? You may never make this only for yourself, but if you have a pool party coming up or you’re just feeling frisky, here is the recipe for our Flamingo Sour:

2 oz  Virgil Kaine Ginger infused Bourbon
0.5 oz  The Perfect Purée Pink Guava
1 oz  Lime Juice
0.75 oz  Simple Syrup
0.5 oz  Lemon Juice
0.25 oz  Orange Juice
0.25 oz  Egg White
fresh fruit to garnish

If you do end up feeling brave and making this at home, share it on instagram and tag us @whiskeybird! We want to see your at-home creations.

If You Love Piña Coladas...

… and especially if you don’t love them, you need to try what real piña colada tastes like. When people think of this tiki bar staple, they typically associate it with milky sickening sweetness. The thought of that along with cheap rum hasn’t exactly helped this cocktail’s modern day reputation. Though its true tropical origin has been debated, everyone agrees that the ingredients consist of rum, coconut, and pineapple.

It may seem like an unlikely choice for a New American restaurant (with Asian inspired flair) to boast as one of their favorites, but we’re going to do it anyway. It’s the dark horse underdog in our cocktail menu that may just become your new favorite #treatyoself happy hour drink. This is IF and only if it’s made properly.

What’s the key to a good piña colada? The same as anything… good ingredients.

  • 2 oz Flor da Caña white rum
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • 2 oz of Coco Lopez coconut cream
  • 2 oz fresh pineapple juice

Shake it up, pour over ice, and you’ve got a tropical getaway in a glass. We love the way it contrasts with the rest of our menu – which light drinkers may consider intimidating or liquor forward. The Piña Colada is the approachable gateway cocktail; silky smooth, rich and balanced with a touch of sweet that you will not regret. You’ll soon realize why this even became a thing and maybe that song will start to make more sense..
