FAQ's

FAQ

What is the best method to achieve a frothy texture with the egg white in Jack's Sour?

The key to achieving a frothy texture with the egg white in Jack's Sour is to ensure a vigorous shake. First, dry shake (shake without ice) the cocktail ingredients with the egg white to start the emulsification process. Then, add ice and shake again to chill and further aerate the mixture. This double-shaking method is critical for creating a silky, frothy texture typical of sours that include egg white.

FAQ

Can I replace raspberry with another fruit in Jack's Sour?

Adjust the quantity based on the sweetness and tartness of the substitute fruit to keep the cocktail's overall balance.

Is there a non-alcoholic version of Jack's Sour?

To create a non-alcoholic version of Jack's Sour, substitute the tequila and orange liqueur with non-alcoholic alternatives.
