Clementine Whiskey Sour

This season, kick up your classic sour with a hint of sweetness from homemade clementine syrup, smooth Bushmills USA and frothy egg whites. #ad

Ingredients

Clementine Syrup

  • 10 oz can of clementines in syrup OR 8 fl oz of clementine juice
  • 9 oz sugar

Clementine Whiskey Sour

  • 1 2/3 fl oz Bushmills Original
  • 5/6 fl oz / 5 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 5/6 fl oz / 5 teaspoons egg white
  • ½ fl oz clementine syrup
  • 1 dash orange bitters (optional)
  • 1 clementine segment and long orange peel on cocktail stick for garnish
  • Cubed ice

Steps

Clementine Syrup

  1. Add the clementines in syrup to a blender. Blend on high power, getting the pulp as fine as possible.
  2. Using a muslin cloth or cheesecloth, strain the syrup into a jug catching all of the pulp in the cloth and keeping the liquid only. You should end up with about 8 fl oz of juice.
  3. Add this juice to a small pan along with the sugar. Heat on a low heat, stirring to help dissolve the sugar, about 3 minutes.
  4. Store the syrup in a heatproof jug and allow to cool before use.
  5. If you are working with juice to start, add this juice to a small pan along with the sugar. Heat on a low heat, stirring to help dissolve the sugar, about 3 minutes. Allow to cool before use and store the syrup in a heatproof jug.

Clementine Whiskey Sour

  1. Add the Bushmills Original, lemon juice, egg white and clementine syrup to a cocktail shaker, seal and dry shake (this mean shake without ice).
  2. Open the shaker and add enough cubed ice to fill the shaker. Seal the shaker and hard shake for approximately thirty seconds.
  3. Open the cocktail tin, place the hawthorne strainer in the tin and carefully pour the liquid into the rocks glass.
  4. Garnish with a dash of orange bitters and a mandarin slice and peel that has been skewered on a cocktail stick.
