"Pomegranate Fancy Sour is a super fancy Sour with homemade Grenadine, lemon, honey, Gin and Quillaja for luscious texture. The Pomegranate Fancy Sour is a celebration of in season fresh Winter pomegranates and lemons inspired by vintage fancy sour cocktail recipes featuring Grenadine from the 1900’s – I refer to Grenadine Sour Clover Leaf Cocktails such as that of Jacob Grohusko in his Jack’s Manual 4th Edition (Grohusko 1916: 44; also see 1910a: 39) and Geo. R. Washburne and Stanley Bronner (Washburne & Bronner 1911: 67) in Beverages De-Luxe calling for citrus, Grenadine, Gin, and egg white, garnished with a mint leaf floated on top of the drink. In the Pomegranate Fancy Sour, I have retained the Gin base, and citrus with lemon juice, I split the homemade Grenadine with an extra rich honey syrup and swap out the egg white for Quillaja, borrowed from the Soda Fountain, for a rich foamy texture. I replace the mint leaf of the Clover Leaf Cocktail with an edible golden dehydrated lemon wheel for beautiful decadent styling and vibrant aroma of lemon oil."
