Radcliffe Rum Sour

Some recipes write themselves. There’s nothing mysterious in the Radcliffe Rum Sour cocktail recipe. Just use great ingredients and you’re left with a rich, satisfying and dangerously moreish drink. It’s both refreshing and deeply flavoursome, with a complex finish that lingers delightfully on the palate.

This is an old recipe of ours that we wrote in the mid 00s. It’s named after good friend, fellow bartender and rum lover Simon Radcliffe. The great thing about simple recipes that are based on classic formulas like the sour, is that they never go out of trend. They’re just always good. Read More
