“Sour mix” is used by bartender’s to make many cocktails which would use a combination of lemon juice and sugar syrup. Sour mix can be purchased already made but here is our own Bed and Breakfast Cerrito Tropical Taboga Island Panama recipe version to be used in our own Taboga Island Cerrito Seco Sour.
I don´t like commercial mixes much, not only expensive but not natural or fresh tasting normally, so I experimented making my own finally settling on this one.
Taboga Island Panama Sour Mix
Makes 1 quart (1 liter):
18 oz Water
12 oz fresh squeezed Taboga Island limes or other fresh limes or lemon juice (or if really desperate a good quality bottled lemon juice)
1/2 cup sugar
Mix well and use in the Taboga Island Seco Sour.
To make a Taboga Island Seco Sour:
The blender helps achieve a nice froth; no shaking required.
2 ounces SECO
2-4 ounces of Taboga Island Sour Mix (to taste)
Dash Angostura bitters
Combine the SECO, Taboga Island Sour Mix in a blender or a shaker; process for 30 seconds. Add a handful of ice and process for 1 minute, then pour into a highball glass. Garnish with a dash of bitters atop the foam. CHEERS from Bed and Breakfast Cerrito Tropical!
