Jasmine Mandarin Sour Cocktail - Lessons on Vodka

Created to showcase flavors typical of Asia such as jasmine tea and mandarin oranges, the Jasmine Mandarin Sour is also a good example of a twist on a classic. Using a sour base, Simon layers on vodka infused with jasmine tea and the robust flavor of Absolut Mandarin to create a modern experience of the classic sour.


3/4 - 1 oz lemon juice

3/4 oz simple syrup

one egg white

2 oz Jasmine Tea Infused Abslout Mandarin Vodka


Dry shake or whip ingredients to emulsify.

Add ice and shake.

Strain into a cocktail glass.

Garnish with an orange peel.

I didn’t realize the infusion process was that fast with vodka and tea bags, that’s definitely something I’ll try soon

I enjoyed this at the Art of the Cocktail in Rochester, NY yesterday! 

One question: If using a lower proof alcohol, does the steeping time increase?  I’m thinking of trying this with sake.

Do you think it might work well in the ISI whip?
I mean, just to produce a foam with all that flavours
