Anyone have guidance on how to pronounce the name of this drink?
Sur rahtch er?
Soo rahsh ay?
Sour Acre?

Answering my own question, The Raven & Rose bar (Dave Shenaut's home base) tweets "It's sour (just like the flavor) aCKer (rhymes with cracker)."

Fantastic and refreshing. One of my favorite long drinks. (5 stars)
