Bramley Somerset Temperley Sour

A quintessentially British Summer cocktail. Think countryside pub, farms and apple orchards.


  • 2 Bramley apples peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3tbsp caster sugar or more depending on the apples
  • 8 good measures of Somerset cider brandy
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 egg white
  • Ice cubes


  • Place apples into a saucepan with the sugar and a cup of water, bring to the boil and cook on a low heat for about 6-7 minutes, until the apples get soft.
  • Strain through a fine meshed sieve, pushing some of the apple through the sieve.
  • Put the cider brandy in a cocktail shaker with 8 tablespoons of the apple syrup, the lemon and the egg white, half fill it with ice cubes and shake well for a minute.
