The Drunk Dish Maple Sour is the featured drink in Episode 16 “Maple Syrup Mafia”. This is a standard whiskey sour with a few tweaks. Extra citrus, cardamon bitters, and a dash of cinnamon make this a great fall cocktail.
2 oz. Bourbon (We used Bulleit Bourbon)
1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 – 1 oz. Maple Syrup (We used NH made Ben’s Sugar Shack)
4 Drops Cardamom Bitters
2 tbsp. Aquafaba (or 1 egg white)*
Dash of Cinnamon to top
1. Place aquafaba (or egg white) in a cocktail shaker; dry shake (without ice) vigorously 20 to 30 seconds to aerate.
2. Add whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice, and maple syrup; fill shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 1 minute.
3. Place one large ice cube into a rocks glass; strain whiskey sour over ice. Top foam with a dash of cinnamon. Garnish with cherries if desired.
*Aquafaba is the canning liquid from canned chickpeas. This is great way to create a cocktail foam without the use of eggs, which I prefer. If you decide to use egg white, be sure to top with cinnamon and maybe a drop or two of cardamom bitters to hide the “wet dog smell” that can come from egg based cocktail foam.
