This potent and tart peach sour from Marshall Altier of Jbird Cocktails brings together earthy rum and apple brandy with fragrant creme de peche and aromatic cardamom.

Denizen rum is a blend of Trinidad and Jamaican rums that offers a lot of funky, complex flavor.

At Jbird, the drink is made with a house-infused peach bitters mixed with orange bitters. To make the peach bitters, macerate green cardamom and fresh ripe peaches in vodka for a few weeks, testing for flavor. Strain and bottle in an airtight container.
