Lark on the Park Bids Texas Summer Farewell With the Summer Sour

Summer is fleeting — though it doesn't feel like it thanks to Wednesday's 93-degree high. Nevertheless, fall officially begins on Saturday. Lark on the Park is sad to see the season end, so they're giving their Summer Sour, a unique twist on a whiskey sour, new life.

Lark on the Park's bar director, Jeff Trevino, came up with this take on the traditional New York sour — usually whiskey, sugar and citrus with an egg white and a float of red wine — by adding a cherry-balsamic shrub. Shrubs are fruit drinking-vinegars, used to preserve fresh ingredients back in the day. They can lend a note of complexity to a cocktail.

This bright, slightly acidic cocktail will be available for a bit longer, so stop in and try it before the sun sets on this offering — and the summer.

Summer Sour ($11): Wild Turkey 101, egg white, simple syrup, lemon juice, cherry-balsamic shrub, red wine
