IT’S WORLD SERIES TIME!
Maybe your team is in it, maybe they were plagued with injuries and never had a chance. Regardless, you need a drink. This variation on the whiskey sour adds Aperol for a bit of the bitter taste of defeat. Add in the baseball stitching effect and you’ve got one hell of a drink to enjoy while watching the Cardinals battle the Red Sox.
Baseball Sour Bourbon Cocktail
- 2 oz bourbon
- ¾ oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
- ¾ oz honey syrup*
- ½ oz Aperol
- 1 egg white
Dry shake the ingredients together without ice for 30 seconds to emulsify the egg white and then add ice and shake until very cold. Strain into a cocktail glass. Drop aromatic bitters in the foam and drag a toothpick through the drops to make a stitching pattern.
*To make honey syrup mix equal parts of honey and hot water. For more photos of how to make the Baseball Sour Bourbon Cocktail visit my Flickr page.
