About sour cocktails

Sours are a family of cocktails that contain a base spirit or liqueur, citrus juice as the sour element (usually lemons) and a sweetener – most commonly sugar but also honey, agave syrup etc.. However, if the base is a liqueur then no additional sweetener may be required. While Sours can be incredibly simple, they are arguably the oldest and most important of all cocktail categories.
