Hauschka Sour

Everyone has Super Bowl fever, especially all our customers up in Seattle. Describing them as excited is a huge understatement. The city is on fire! We saw this recipe in the Seattle Times so we thought we’d give it a try. We had to make a slight adjustment to the original recipe because we don’t carry the sage liqueur. The drink was refreshing, slightly sweet and tart, with a nice foamy top. We’re pretty sure Steven Hauschka (the Seahawks kicker) whom this drink is named after would get a big kick out of it. We’ll see if Joe Montana’s Aviation Gin brings him any luck. Good luck Seahawks!!
