It’s not just 5 o’clock somewhere, it’s 5 o’clock here in NY and I for one, am ready for a cocktail. To quote The Kinks, it’s been one mixed up, muddled up, shook up week and I intend to indulge in one of these cocktails tonight with a good friend before gorging on pasta, wine and a feel good romantic comedy.
Apple Whiskey Sour
Makes 1 drink
2 oz. Cocktail Crate’s Maple Whiskey Sour
2 oz. premium bourbon whiskey
1/2 of an apple, cored and peeled (plus additional thin slices for garnish)
1 egg white
1. In a blender, puree the apple for 1-2 minutes until apple is juiced. You will still have pulp, this will not create a smooth mixture and that is perfectly fine. A blender is just a much simpler way of muddling the apple than trying to do it by hand. Transfer all contents of the blender into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
2. Add mixer, bourbon and egg white to the shaker. Then cover and shake vigorously.
3. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a fresh apple slice.
