Elske Sour #2

Gin Plum earthy
2 oz Gin, City of London
34 oz Sake, Nigori
34 oz Simple syrup (Umeboshi, see note)
34 oz Lemon juice
2 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 pn Yeast (Toasted bakers yeast)
Build in a shaker, add pinch of toasted yeast, shake well and double strain.
To make the Umeboshi syrup, Blend 6 umeboshi into simple syrup then fine strain.
Similar to a plum/ginger sour but I love the added umami and saltiness of the umeboshi and yeast.
From other users
  • Had this at Elske and *loved* it. Made it at home and it was less good but still excellent. Put 3 umeboshi into 4oz of simple. Would do more ume next time. Ume garnish is good. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Love it. It's almost yogurty. — ☆☆☆☆☆

I'm super excited about

I'm super excited about replicating this but I think I'm missing a volume for syrup in the umeboshi syrup. I'm assuming that don't want six umeboshi into ¾oz of syrup but maybe I'm being unimaginative.
