I was particularly excited about this recipe because it called for egg whites and I haven't had the chance to make a cocktail with egg whites yet. I was a little intimidated by it, but it's actually quite easy! It's also very, very tasty. I was also intrigued that it called for Scotch whisky, as that's not the norm for a sour. The overall taste was a perfect combination of smoky and tart.
Here's the recipe:
2 oz. Scotch whisky
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1/2 egg white
Lemon slice and cherry to garnish (did not have these, so I skipped the garnish)
Shake all ingredients together with cubed ice. Strain into beaker and blitz with a hand blender. Pour into rocks glass and add garnish. *I don't own a hand blender, so I poured into my stand blender and gave it a quick whirl. It worked just as well!*
Voila! I will definitely be making this cocktail again. It might just be my new favorite! Give it a try and let us know how you like it!
