Justin Tisdale creates this seasonal twist on a Whiskey Sour by adding a touch of cranberry juice and sweetening things with a syrup flavored with warm winter spices.
2 oz. bourbon
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
¼ oz. cranberry juice
1½ oz. gingerbread syrup
1 egg white (pasteurized if you like)
2 dashes Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer
Combine ingredients in a shaker and shake well, without ice, for at least 20 seconds. Fill with ice and shake again for at least 10 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish.
