The Spiced Apple Sour is just one of the many drinks on offer through Instapour, the tech startup that delivers cocktail ingredients—including alcohol—right to your door. With a few clicks, a high-quality spirit and a pre-made cocktail mix will arrive ready for you to shake and enjoy.
Chief mixologist Warren Hode and the Instapour team created recipes using only the best ingredients to ensure that an at-home experience is comparable to that of a fine cocktail bar. “We don’t cut corners on the quality or variety of our ingredients. Our recipes are developed by starting in the kitchen—like traditional chefs—to develop blends and combinations that translate beautifully to the glass,” says Hode.
This concoction uses real apples muddled with cinnamon and nutmeg to achieve the flavor of apple pie—with a sour kick.
