A variation on the whiskey sour. The elderflower and freshly squeezed grapefruit give the drink a floral bite, the peychauds bitters add a hint of sophistication and complexity, while the use of egg white and a hard shake ensure a silken velvety mouthfeel. Minimal ingredients and methods allow the light yet oaky character of The Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey to develop on the palate – hence straight up and minimal garnish.
- 50ml The Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey
- 15ml Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
- Dash Peychauds bitters
- 10ml Elderflower cordial
- 20ml Pasteurised egg white
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Dot 3 drops of bitters on top.
