This post is intended for those 21+ years of age. Please enjoy responsibly. Whiskey Sour.
I think I may have mentioned a time or two before around my little corner of the world wide web here that I am indeed a whiskey girl. I made really good friends with Jim and Jack in college. I tried really hard to be a beer girl but it never stuck.
Okay okay I really didn’t try all that hard, I could never get past the first few sips. I am a beer quitter. There I said it. Who knows, maybe one day a beer will come along and knock me off my feet but until then gimme a whiskey.
I typically like my whiskey neat, but on those occasions when I’m feeling frivolous I like to go with a whiskey sour. One that’s made with an EGG WHITE. Yep, an egg white. Why? The egg white softens the lemon flavor and gives the drink a frothiness it otherwise wouldn’t have. It’s pretty much the bomb diggity. Go ahead and get frothy.
If you’re concerned about using a raw egg white be sure to use Davidson’s Safest Choice pasteurized eggs. “Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural, gentle water bath pasteurization process to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. The vast majority of eggs sold in grocery stores are NOT pasteurized. Safest Choice™ offers peace of mind when making recipes calling for raw or undercooked eggs, and removes the worry of cross contamination. Problem solved.
I’m also obsessed with the giant sphere ice cubes. I purchased a MOLD (on prime because I heart prime) and have been putting giant balls of ice into all the drinks. I may never have to go out for fancy drinks again.
Y’all, please remember to drink responsibly.

I love those sphere ice molds too. They’re perfect and so is this whiskey sour!
That is a luxe looking drink. Stunning pics!
An egg white?! No way! I’ve never been a whiskey girl, unless it’s been in a sauce. I have to try one now.

Wow, my mind is seriously blown right now! I love this!
I love using egg whites in smoothies too, makes for a thick and frothy shake. Great idea!
I love a good whiskey sour! Sometimes I get picked on for ordering them. Glad to see they’re back in style. But an egg white? I had no idea!

This is one good looking cocktail! I’m a huge whiskey fan (what girl isn’t?) so this drink is totally up my alley. Plus I love the addition of an egg white to make it super frothy.

I was a little wigged out the first time I had a cocktail with egg in it, but I was surprised by how good it actually was. I love how frothy they get – and I love that I don’t have to worry if I use the safest choice eggs.

I could never develop a taste for beer, either. Give me a whiskey sour like this any day!
The Food Hunter says
Love the ice molds! I’ve got to try these eggs

I have giant balls too. Ice balls, that is. I also have the giant squares so I get to say I’m a giant square as well. Because, why not.
I love this drink. I’m with you, Whiskey is for drinking, beer is for cooking. Just a fact.
Also, do you happen to know if they have those eggs in Canada? Because now I really, really want them. I have all kinds of recipes I could use those in. I’ve not seen them here but I’m in a small town, so maybe they have them in the city. If not I think this calls for a trip over to Michigan. Hm, I see a massive shopping trip in my future. Nothing more fabulous than living 20 minutes from the border. Life is good.
