Another day, another sour! haha I do love this style of drink if you haven’t already noticed. Sadly it is pretty unlikely you will be able to recreate this one completely at home, due to the use of Charoset bitters created by Louis Anderman and Miracle Mile Bitters, simply for friends and family.
For those of you who don’t know, Charoset is a sweet, dark-colored, paste made of fruits and nuts eaten at the Jewish Passover Seder. Its color and texture are meant to recall mortar (or mud used to make adobe bricks) which the Israelites used when they were enslaved in Ancient Egypt. The word “charoset” comes from the Hebrew word cheres — חרס — meaning “clay.” There are many recipes for charoset. Eastern European charoset is made from chopped walnuts and apples, spiced with cinnamon and sweet wine. Honey or sugar can be used as a sweetener and binder.
Miracle Miles Charoset bitters had a lovely cinnamon apple smell and worked beautifully on top of this sour. Seeing as Passover began last night at sundown, this Sour FutureGreg made for me seemed a fitting option for drink of the week.
