A unique and refreshing bourbon sour.
2 oz Bourbon
34 oz Plum shrub (I recommend steeping the shrub with mint, but it would be fine without it)
12 oz Amaro, Amaro di Angostura
Shake with ice and serve straight up. Garnish with mint.
I made the shrub by chopping up a ripe plum into cubes and tossing it into a jar with an equal amount of sugar and a few sprigs of mint. Once all of the liquid was extracted after a few days, I removed the plum pieces and mint, and I added an equal amount of apple vinegar. My ratio was 1/2 cup plum, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup vinegar (and a few mint sprigs).
