Shaken not Stirred – Apple Sour Perlini Mocktail

For this episode of Shaken not Stirred we bring you a refreshing mocktail with slight sour notes all the way from Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers – the Apple Sour Perlini. The mixologists at Fairmont Baku use the Perlini shaker – which carbonates drinks – to give an added dimension to their cocktails – the gas lending a unique fizz to a classic cocktail. However, this cocktail will work just as well without gas.

You will need: 

  • 1/2 cooking apple
  • 15 ml Monin apple syrup
  • 20 ml lemon juice
  • 14 ml of apple juice
  • Garnish: thinly sliced apple

Chop up your preferred apple – the sourer the better – add into a the shaker. Muddle the fruit, mashing it into a pulp.

Add syrup, lemon juice, apple juice and ice to the fruit. For an alcoholic version, add 50 ml vodka at this stage.

Then give it all  a good shake – if you can, this is the time to add a little gas to give added fizz!

Double strain into a prepared iced glass and garnish with a thinly sliced apple, floating on the surface.

 Enjoy – you know what they say… “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away”
