A few more words about the sweet-acid balance, because that's what makes or breaks this drink. Because every connoisseur and every lemon tastes different, it is difficult to give an exact guideline here. Hence the banal-sounding tip: Try it! Open the shaker, put in the bar spoon, open your mouth. The drink is too sweet? Add a squeeze of lemon, shake again. The drink is too acidic? More sugar.
Do you mix a Laori Sour with or without protein?
You're probably wondering right now: protein? Yes, exactly. The secret ingredient is protein. Now that we've shown you how to mix a Laori Sour at home, we need to talk about protein. Because in good bars this cocktail is sometimes served with egg whites. You can't taste it, but it gives the drink a stylish head of foam and a fuller, creamy mouthfeel.
The following applies to your visit to the bar: Ask how the Laori Sour is mixed on site and say whether you want it with or without protein. The following applies to you at home: Do what you and your guests like. Our tip: Even if the protein thing sounds strange at first - you should at least try out the creamy adventure. This version not only looks great, it also tastes fantastic - but not at all like eggs.
You usually don't have to have any health concerns as long as you use fresh, organic eggs. But if you are wondering whether the Laori Sour is still vegan, we unfortunately have to answer “No." answer. That doesn't mean that you have to go without as a vegan: Aquafaba, i.e. water from soaked chickpeas, is a great alternative to egg white and works just as well!
