MAPLE & LIME WHISKEY SOUR
So this happens to be our go to cocktail and if you make it well you’ll understand why .. I personally hate overly sweet cocktails, they make me feel ill and sick at the thought of what the sugar is doing to me so I try and stay away .. for this delightful cocktail it still has a hint of sweet but pure maple syrup. As it’s got an egg white per serve I’ve taken to referring to it as my ‘Protein Shake’ :)
Some studies suggest that maple syrup’s antioxidant plant nutrients (known as phenols) offer health benefits. Maple syrup has a lower glycemic index than sugar. Also, because maple syrup tends to be sweeter, theoretically you can use less of it.
3 parts Whiskey ( I use a blended whiskey as to not wade a single malt !)
1 part Pure Maple Syrup
1 egg white
1 part Lime Juice
Fill shaker with ice, add all ingredients and shake for a good 20-30 seconds vigorously. Strain and serve in a Classic Cocktail coupe.
Garnish with lime skin and I sprinkle some Chipotle Chilli flakes ontop as they look so good floating on the foam !
