A classic whiskey sour calls for just just a handful of ingredients - whiskey, lemon juice, sugar, and believe it or not, egg white.
We know... we were a little wary of putting raw egg white in a cocktail, but we really wanted to keep with the classic recipe, and we're sure glad we did! You don't taste the egg at all, and it gives it almost a meringue like quality. You can certainly skip it, and it'll still be completely delicious, but it really did add something special, and it's what gives you that great frothy top layer.
Since it's fall, and we're obsessed with all things apple cider, we decided to add a little cider to our cocktail, and we recommend you do the same!
The cider pair perfectly with the bourbon - it's a little bit sweet, a little bitter tart, and definitely has a little bit of a kick to it.
- 1 shot of whiskey (we are partial to Buffalo Trace Bourbon since it's a little bit sweet)
- 1 shot of apple cider
- Juice from half of a lemon
- 1 tablespoon of lemon
- 1 egg white
- A dash of cinnamon
Combine all ingredients (except the cinnamon) in a cocktail shaker over ice, shake for a good 15 seconds and strain into your martini glass. Top with cinnamon, put on your best blanket scarf, and enjoy outside!
Oh and in case you're wondering - the cocktail napkins were a recent pickup from Home Goods. It's literally impossible to leave there without at least 3 packs of cocktail napkins every time we go!
