The 3 Ingredient Cocktail Recipe

Ash Apothecary 3 Ingredient Cocktail Recipe

It only takes 3 ingredients to make a craft cocktail at home! 

In classic cocktail-making, this simple recipe is known as the Sour. One of the most versatile cocktail categories, Sours work with almost any combination of 3 elements: a simple syrup, a citrus juice, and a liquor. 

Ash Apothecary Simple Syrups take the basic Sour to the next level. With flavors like Lavender Bud and Winter Spice, you'll be making cocktails like a pro in no time. Just follow our recommended ratio, and you're all set!

Here are some of our favorite combinations. Combine all your ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake until chilled, and strain into a highball glass. Serve up or on the rocks. Garnish with a wheel, wedge, or rind from your citrus fruit.
