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

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)
Very spicy and delicious. Not particularly bitter (5 stars)
