The Trinidad Sour I know and love includes an egg white. Mmm...

The Trinidad sour you know and love is wrong.

Fantastic. I need to go buy some some extra bottles of Angostura.

I decided to try this since I have this newly found surplus of homemade orgeat... Absolutely delicious, 5/5. Orgeat finishes cocktails in the same way a nice Picada finishes a Spanish seafood stew.

A fantastic drink - the orgeat barely holds off the Angostura's bitterness, and opens it up nicely. I can't figure out why the Rye's there, but this is a winner of a counterintuitive drink.

So that's why they make Angostura in those huge bottles...

fuck yeah.
Excellent. I was afraid of it before I tried it, but it's amazing. (5 stars)
Classic sour combo of flavors. Unexpectedly nice. Lots of christmas spices. Added scant 1/4 oz aged rum for a little more roundness. Taste merits a 4 but it is a unique enough flavor that people will probably love it or ha (3 stars)
Full 1.5 oz of rye, mint garnish is nice (5 stars)
Very spicy and delicious. Not particularly bitter (5 stars)
