On the Rocks: Pisco Sour.

In my mind I’ve been a day ahead of schedule this week. Which means I woke up thinking today was Thursday. And was sad when I realized it was, in fact, not. But since Thursday is the official start of the weekend and I was already there, a cocktail is definitely in order. I’m really feeling the Pisco Sour.

Ingredients:
- egg white
- 2 1/2 ounces Chilean Pisco Capel
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
- Angostura Bitters

In cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine egg white, Pisco, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Cover, shake vigorously for 15 seconds, and strain into six-ounce cocktail glass. Top with a few drops of bitters.

How do you feel about cocktails that contain egg whites?

    I love these – I saw how they made Pisco in South America – it was so neat!

    I like your rationalization!

    I have to admit, I would be wary of alcohol + egg whites, but I’d be willing to try!

    i’ve never had a cocktail with an egg white, i think i would have no problem with it-if i didn’t know it was an ingredient ;)

    i forgot to mention that i haven’t tried an egg white infused cocktail myself yet – it sort of weirds me out but i figure the alcohol will negate anything gross about it!
