The Plum Sour is a tantalizing cocktail that combines the rich sweetness of plum with the tartness of lemon juice. Typically made with plum liqueur, bourbon or whiskey, and simple syrup, it offers a harmonious blend of fruity and boozy flavors, creating a refreshing and well-balanced sipper with a vibrant purple hue.
