Ingredients & method:

60ml (2oz) Bulleit Bourbon – I’m using Bulleit for the high Rye content
30ml (1oz) lemon juice
15ml (1/2 oz) sugar syrup
2 Dashes Orange Bitters
15ml (1/2 oz) egg white (optional)
Orange twist
Cherry (optional)
A jigger
A shaker
Hawthorn strainer
Fine strainer
Rocks/old fashioned glass
Good ice

Add your bitters, sugar syrup, lemon juice & bourbon to a shaker tin. If you’re using egg white, add that here too.

Before adding ice, you want to dry shake to get a nice froth. You'll need to shake quite hard.

Once you have a nice froth, fill the smaller shaker tin with ice and shake hard again, this time until cold.

It’s important to double strain, otherwise the chips will ruin the froth.

Serve on the rocks & add your twist/cherry.
