WHISKEY SOUR #11

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.

This story should have been about the perfect cocktails for a Moab trip in April, then it was Whistler in June, then Downieville in August… This cocktail collaboration with Pivot Cycles was to be my anti-bachelor party - for the guys in our High Camp riding crew who didn’t want the traditional tomfoolery of a bachelor party - who just wanted to go somewhere epic and ride. We envisioned a much different storyline for our first promotion with Pivot, but eventually 2020, as we know it, arrived. We postponed our weddings, got refunds for our flights, and then the fear and uncertainty of our new-normal set in.

In collaboration with Breckenridge Distilling, we tested a bottle of their new Rum Cask Finish Whiskey in one of our go-to cocktails: The Blood & Sand. It calls for Scotch, but this year was all about adapting our appetite to domestic possibilities. The resulting substitution of a smokey scotch for an apple-cinnamon laced whiskey teleported this cocktail into the tiki-verse. After a hot and dusty ride, this cocktail doubled-down on our sentiment that paradise is where you take it.

Doris and Fred are derisive terms used by “serious” cyclists to describe, well, everyone else. This cocktail is for those who choose to ride to have fun, and pack a drink for the finish line. This collab comes straight from the folks at Pivot Cycles and the 105 proof whiskey of Breckenridge Distillers High ProofIt’s loaded with notes of caramel, almonds, and orange peel to complement the tannins in the tea used in this unique group of mixing agents. She’s No Doris is a hell of an apres-ride.
