Smokey Scotch Sour
With the sun coming out, I thought it was time for a series of Single Malt Cocktails.
Number two in this series: Smokey Scotch Sour.
This is a play on the "Whiskey Sour", but instead of bourbon, I'm using a very peated Scotch Single malt!
6 cl of a single malt whisky, in this case: Mr Peat
2,5 cl (fresh) lemon juice.
2 cl Sugar syrup (Monin pure sugar cane)
1,5 cl Eggwhite (I used a fresh egg. If you are scared of that, use pasteurized egg whites.
Crushed Ice in a glass
Optional: Garnish (a slice of orange)
Put ice in the cocktail shaker
Add the whisky
Add the lemon juice
Add the sugar syrup
Add the eggwhite
Shake with the ice, strain, shake again without ice.
Pour in a glass filled with ice
Oh this smoke adds a whole lot of flavor to this fresh cocktail!
Ofcourse you can try it with a non-peated whisky, my advice would be to add something contrasting to it. Like bitters.
This cocktail goes great with a summer BBQ, a lobster salad or any other great summer dinner you can imagine.
