Read an article this weekend about how gwynethpaltrow broke down and ate bread during the pandemic. This, I could not relate to. I could, relate, however to Gwyneth crafting Maple Whiskey Sours. I’ve actually never even had a whiskey sour before, but if these are good enough for our queen of Goop, I was eager to give it a go. gimmesomeoven had a fun recipe to try. Cheers! Grab some bread while you’re at it! 🥖 👩🏻🍳
2 ounces whiskey
1 egg white* (optional)
1 ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice (or other citrus juice)
3/4 ounce maple syrup
2–3 shakes Angostura bitters (optional)
If using the egg white, add whiskey and egg white to a cocktail shaker and vigorously shake for 15-20 seconds until the egg white is very frothy. (If not using the egg white, you can skip this step.)
Add the lemon juice, maple syrup, bitters (if using) and a handful of ice to the shaker, and shake for a few seconds to combine and chill the drink. Strain and serve immediately in a glass over ice.
