What is a Gin Sour?

Gin Sour is fun, making it a must-mix cocktail! It belongs to the cocktail category of sours, all of which are based on the mixture of spirit, sweetness and acidity. In this case gin, simple syrup and lemon juice. This makes it a simple cocktail and a great classic. For this reason, it should not be missing from any good bar menu - and of course not from your bar at home either!

With our Laori Juniper No 1 you can easily enjoy this non-alcoholic drink - without losing taste and without a hangover!

The taste is rounded off with frothy protein, which gives the drink its full-bodied creaminess.

Glass & Decoration

  • Tumbler glass and fresh lemon zest for decoration


  • Pour all ingredients except ice into the shaker
  • Shake for 1 minute, then add ice and shake again for 1 minute so that the egg white or aquafaba becomes foamy
  • Then strain with strainer and sieve
  • Garnish with fresh lemon zest. Enjoy!

A few more words about the sweet-sour balance, because this drink stands and falls with it. Because every connoisseur and every lemon tastes different, it is difficult to give precise guidelines here. Hence the banal-sounding tip: try it! Open the shaker, put in the bar spoon, open your mouth. The drink is too sweet? Squirt lemon in, shake again. The drink is too acidic? More sugar.

Do you mix a Laori Sour with or without egg whites?

You're probably asking yourself: protein? Yes, exactly. The secret ingredient is protein. Now that we've shown you how to make your own Laori Sour at home, let's talk egg whites. 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 would like it with or without egg white. The following applies to you at home: Do what you and your guests like. Our tip: Even if the egg white sounds strange at first - you should embark on the creamy adventure at least once. This variant not only looks great, it also tastes fantastic - but not a bit like egg.

You don't usually have to worry about your health as long as you use fresh, organic eggs. But if you're wondering whether the Laori Sour is still vegan, we unfortunately have to answer "No."That doesn't mean 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 too!
