Grand-Dad's Morning Sour

This is my take on the classic Marmalade Sour.
I upped the whiskey and reduced the lemon and simple syrup to make this cocktail a more spirit-forward drink. I say, who needs a Mimosa when you could have a nice strong sour?!

Here’s a little info about Old Grand-Dad Whiskey: Old Grand-Dad is a brand of whiskey distilled at the Jim Beam Plant. The brand was created by Raymond B. Hayden and was named after his grandfather Basil Hayden,  Sr., a well known distiller during his lifetime, who is also depicted on the front of each bottle. Old Grand-Dad has a high rye content that helps create a well-balanced cocktail.

And yes, this cocktail has an egg white in it… Please don’t be scared, it  just makes this cocktail ever so silky, smooth and beautiful!

2.5 ounces Old Grand-Dad Bonded Whiskey
.5 ounce Lemon Juice
.5 ounce Simple Syrup
1 Tablespoon Kansas City Canning Co Clementine Thyme Marmalade
3 dashes Orange Bitters
1 Fresh Egg White

Combine all ingredients into a shaker and shake for 10 seconds. Then add ice and shake for about 20 more seconds. Fine-strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish necessary.
