Smoked Whiskey Sour Flip
2 oz. bourbon or whiskey of choice
1 & 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 oz. simple syrup
1 egg white
Signature smoked ice
1 piece thick-cut candied bacon
Add all ingredients except ice and bacon to a shaker and dry shake.
Add smoked ice (2-3 cubes will infuse the perfect amount of smoke flavor) to the shaker and shake well.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or over ice into a rocks glass. Garnish and serve.
For Signature Smoked Ice
Pour approximately 1 cup of water into a Pyrex dish and place into your smoker/grill. If using a grill, you will need a smoke tube or a smoke tray that will hold wood chips or pellets to generate smoke.
Smoke the water for about 45 minutes to an hour, then remove from smoke source.
Once the water has reached room temperature, place into your favorite ice tray and freeze.
For Candied Bacon Garnish
Cook thick-cut bacon on a wire rack over a baking sheet at 350° until partially cooked (10-15 minutes).
Remove bacon from oven, and cover liberally in brown sugar. Place back into the oven until the brown sugar starts to caramelize and becomes tacky.
Remove from oven, and let sit at room temperature until set.
Trim about 1/4 off one strip for drink garnish.
“This drink is where a Southern gentleman and a rugged man collide. Indoctrinated by smoke with a sophisticated twist, this whiskey sour won’t disappoint.”
