Every fall season we are bombarded by Pumpkin Spice Everything! The Harvest Sour features similar baking spice notes without being cloyingly sweet. A little Chinese 5 Spice up top gives it the look of a latte but the nose of fennel and black pepper.


.75 oz Cardamaro

.5 oz Lemon Juice

1 oz Chai Sweet Potato Cordial (1:1:1/2 Chai Simple Syrup, Sweet Potato Purée, Vodka)

Egg White

4 dash Saline (10:1 Water, Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt)

2 dash Regan’s No. 6 Orange Bitters

Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin and dry shake (without ice) for 30 seconds. Add ice to the tin and shake for an additional 30 seconds. Double strain into a chilled Coupe glass and garnish with dehydrated citrus and Chinese 5 Spice.
