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.

Toast To 2020
Toast To 2020

December 31, 2020

Wow, what a year it's been! 2020 will certainly go down in the books as a monumental one for all of us. We're sending it off with a classy cocktail and toasting to a New Year with only hope and happy thoughts ahead of us. 

This drink is also known as the Twentieth Century Cocktail and it's a somewhat forgotten little gem. It's a brilliant cocktail that brings together a few unlikely companions: While you may not think that gin, chocolate, and lemon work well together, this recipe offers a pleasant surprise. The mix of gin and crème de cacao is amazing and the lemon acts as a foil to the sweet liqueur. Adding the elegance of Lillet Blanc brings it all together to create a timeless sour drink.
