IRISH APPLE GO BRAGH SOUR COCKTAIL


One of my favorite ways to have a cocktail is a whiskey sour*. Even as a kid I loved sweet and sour together and I was especially fond of Jolly Rancher's sour apple candies. That pucker face it gave you was epic.

I decided it might be fun to try and translate that into a cocktail as a more sophisticated treat for adults. The fact that it used a green colored apple pucker liqueur made it perfect for a Saint Patrick's Day drink!

I smoothed out the sour aspect of the apple pucker with the addition of apple juice, egg white and some powdered sugar. Tart is fine but only to a degree, who wants pucker face after ten years old?

The
APPLE GO BRAGH SOUR


INGREDIENTS:

1 Oz. Dark Rum
1 Oz. Apple Pucker
1 Oz. Apple Juice
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1 Egg White
1 Tsp. Powdered Sugar
Ice
Shamrock Shaped Apple Slice(s) Garnish

TOOLS: Knife or Shamrock shaped cutter(s), Measuring spoons, Blender, Cocktail shaker, Coupe glass

DIRECTIONS:

Chill your coupe in the freezer.
Cut your shamrock shaped apple slice then coat with lemon juice to keep it from browning.
Dry shake (shake without ice) all ingredients except the garnish in a cocktail shaker for 2 - 3 minutes until frothy (or cheat and use a blender like I do.)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in the frothy mixture and shake until chilled.
Pour into your chilled glass and garnish with the shamrock apple.
