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!

Ingredients:
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

Preparation:
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.
Cheers!
