Sour Mix


A well-stocked refrigerator bar needs sour mix.  My friends really like amaretto sours.

This recipe is pretty much exactly like the one from Serious Eats:

Sour Mix

Yield: About 3 cups


1 c. Freshly-squeezed Lemon Juice (about 5 lemons)

1/2 c. Freshly-squeezed Lime Juice (about 4 limes)

1 c. Sugar

1 c. Water

1/4 c. Vodka


Squeeze lemons and limes through a fine strainer to get juice but not seeds or pulp.

Put sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Let cool.

Combine juices, sugar syrup, and vodka in a storage container.  Keep refrigerated.  The internet says it will last a few weeks–and the vodka extends its life to about a month.
