My classic cocktail - sweet potato sour

Cocktails & beverage updates

Taiwan is shaped like a sweet potato, which is why we use it here. People are often intrigued to find it in a cocktail, but they love it once they’ve tried it.

This is a sour made from gin, with sweetness from sweet potato and apricot and nutty notes from the chestnut liqueur. We first make a dry shake, which gives the drink a frothy cocktail and a mousse-like texture.

Sweet Potato Cocktail

For the sweet potato puree

  1. Peel and dice the sweet potato, then cook until tender.

  2. Using a mixer, stir the sweet potato, sugar and water until smooth. Pass through a sieve and a chinois to make it as fine as possible.


  1. Pour the ingredients into the can with a cocktail shaker. Put the lid on and shake dry for 30 seconds.

  2. Remove the lid, add plenty of ice and shake for another 30 seconds.

  3. Fill a short glass with ice. Strain the cocktail over it and rub long pepper over it.
