ST. STEPHEN’S SOUR presented by Cocktail Detour


We’ve mentioned this before – but we love the smoothness orgeat brings to whatever cocktail it’s used in. Here it is mixed with luxurious Cognac and also some rum. The sweet and nutty orgeat complements those spirits so well, and the squeeze of fresh lemon juice helps freshen things up. ⁠

This is a perfect summer highball. We couldn’t resist having our favourite crisps with it – peanut rings.⁠
