Tasting Notes

Upon the first sip, the Disaronno Mexican Sour reveals its vibrant character, with the sweet, nutty essence of Disaronno taking the lead.

The fresh lemon juice introduces a zesty brightness, cutting through the sweetness and enhancing the drink’s complexity.

As the cocktail settles on the palate, the smooth and frothy texture from the egg white becomes more apparent, providing a luxurious mouthfeel. The simple syrup subtly rounds off the flavors, preventing the tartness from becoming overpowering.
