Whiskey Sour #11

March 17, 2020

St. George Distillery's take on the essential whiskey cocktail.

You’ve been grappling with the ocean all day and your mouth is parched and salty. Rather than regrouping your senses with a cold beer, next time try a whiskey sour.

I know, not the first drink that comes to mind when thinking beach day refreshment - but rumor has it, sailors in the 1800s drank whiskey sours to fend off scurvy. The fresh lemon mixed with the simple syrup cuts through the salt with an oakiness that you can’t get from a margarita. Adding an egg-white “Boston-style” adds a smooth texture like a lemon meringue pie.

Halflight 375/Firelight 750

  • 6.5oz/13oz St. George Distillery Breaking & Entering American Whiskey
  • 2.5oz/5oz Lemon Juice
  • 1.75oz/3.5oz Simple Syrup
  • 1.75oz/3.5oz Egg White

Add all ingredients to a shaker & dry shake (no ice) for 30 seconds until frothy. Add ice to shaker & shake again for 15 seconds.

Strain into your High Camp Flask. Serve up with a couple dashes of Angostura bitters.

We use predominantly blanco tequila for the backbone, so the agave flavor shines through on every sip.

Beginning your descent as you fly into SFO, you’ll see a knife edge gash of water cutting into California’s coastline, effectively separating Tomales Point from the rest of Marin County. You are looking at Tomales Bay, a body of water that is the actual San Andreas Fault. It’s part of fog-covered Point Reyes National Seashore and it’s also entirely encompassed by the infamous Red Triangle, home of the largest Great White Sharks in the world. This peninsula would absolutely be the part of California that slices off during an earthquake and also the destination we planned to celebrate 2021’s National Public Lands Day.
