The Café Sweet & Sour balances having a sweet tooth and a love of gin sours with Mr Black. Sweet and spicy notes from the Licor 43 and Cinnamon Sugar rim. The use of a contemporary gin, like Hendricks, introduces even more subtle flavours that mix well with the contemporary coffee liquor that is Mr Black. The Sour component coming from the use of egg whites and dry shake preparation, common in sours.
