Black and Blue Bourbon Sour
The Whiskey Sour has quenched thirsty drinkers for more than one and a half centuries. The first-ever recipe appeared in the famed “Jerry Thomas Bartenders Guide” back in 1962 during the Lincoln administration. Traditionally made with whiskey, lemon juice, sugar, egg white, and ingredients that mellow out the tart flavor. One of the best things about the sour is that you can customize it by adding whatever it s you want. In this Black and Blue Bourbon Sour, we added in some Blackberry syrup and some Blue pea flower tea, hence the name of the cocktail!
All of these ingredients combined with our Wheat Penny 1958 Bourbon create a very pretty-looking drink. Your eyes will get lost in that purple-ish hue. To get the original incarnation of the drink we incorporated the egg white by performing a “dry shake” and then adding fresh ice before shaking again. This mixes the ingredients together into one cohesive unit to create a rich, smooth texture. We garnished this masterpiece with some Butterfly cake toppers to add a unique twist!
