Plum sour

In a cocktail shaker, combine the plum liquor, whiskey, lemon juice, egg white, bitters and syrup. Shake and pour over ice.

Adapted from Hakkasan Beverly Hills. To make brown sugar syrup, combine equal parts brown sugar and water, heating until the sugar is dissolved.

If it’s entertaining, Jessica Gelt has likely covered it. Since joining the Los Angeles Times in 2003, she has written about television, music, movies, books, art, fashion, food, cocktails and more. She once played bass in a band with an inexplicably large following in Spain, and still gets stopped by fans (OK, maybe a fan) on the streets of Barcelona. She loves dive bars and very dry martinis with olives, though never simultaneously.
