Bourbon sours come with and without egg whites -- it's really a matter of preference. This simplified version, served up at Bourbon Butcher Kitchen & Bar, comes without but it does give an opportunity to use whatever seasonal fruit you have around.
- 2 oz Baker's Bourbon
- ¾ oz juice from ½ grilled lemon
- ¾ oz rich simple syrup *
- Fresh fruit (if desired)
* To make rich simple syrup: dissolve 2 cups of sugar into 1 cup of water, over heat. Cool and use immediately, or store in the refrigerator.
Squeeze lemon juice into a shaker tin, and place the rind in there as well. Add any other fresh fruit you'd like to include (like raspberries, to make the drink on the right). Add bourbon, then simple syrup. Shake all ingredients over ice and pour into a lowball glass.
Bourbon Butcher Kitchen & Bar features a large whiskey selection, craft cocktails, local draft beer, burgers, smoked brisket, and small shareable plates in a family-friendly atmosphere...featuring video games!
