Recipe: Drunk Dish Maple Sour

Recipe: Drunk Dish Maple Sour

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.

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.

Episode 15: M-m-m-my Llorona

Recap

In episode 15 we discussed all things Halloween! We at Drunk Dish all agree that Halloween is the best time of year, so to honor it we discuss its pagan roots, modern day celebrations, and the food that the holiday has inspired over the years. Melissa commits to trying “soul cakes.” We learn how bobbing for apples started as a match-making game, and we enjoyed the “La Llorona” cocktails that Melissa mixed up for us. We share ghost stories and, Aimee brands the skeptic of the group – Melissa – as a “Scully.” Listen below or on your preferred podcasting platform.
