Recipe: Muscat Gin Sour

It's no secret that Grace in Rutherglen's Main St is one of our favourite hangouts for interesting and delicious food, wine and cocktails.

They've kindly shared their Muscat Gin Sour recipe for you to try at home.

The hero of this cocktail is Muscat Gin, a hyper local spirit made in collaboration with our friends at Backwoods Distilling in Yackandandah.

Muscat Gin Sour


30ml Muscat Gin
15ml Classic Rutherglen Muscat*
30ml simple syrup*
30ml fresh lemon juice*
30ml egg white or aquafaba

*You may wish to tweak the amounts of lemon juice / simple syrup / muscat depending on the acidity level or your lemons


Add all ingredients except ice to cocktail shaker and dry shake.

Add ice and shake, before double straining into a sour glass.

Tips: “Dry shaking” before adding ice allows the liquids to emulsify, producing more aeration and a thicker foam on top of the finished cocktail.
