Ballad for a Cowgirl

ballad for a cowgirl

With flavors of Kentucky bourbon and lemon pairing with strawberry and balsamic syrup (recipe found here), this drink is a wonderful pairing with any sort of appetizer you can throw at it. A note about dry shaking: when making cocktails with egg whites, its necessary to shake without ice first to get all those delightful proteins activated. 10-15 seconds of a nice hard shake will get you that velvety, creamy consistency.

Ingredients

Equipment: shaker, strainer, coupe or martini glass

¾ oz simple syrup

½ oz strawberry/balsamic syrup

1 oz fresh lemon juice

2 oz bourbon (Eagle Rare is my favorite)

1 egg white

Lemon wheel for garnish

Instructions

Combine simple syrup, strawberry/balsamic syrup, lemon, bourbon and egg white in shaker. Shake vigorously without ice for 10-15 seconds. Open shaker and add ice then shake for an additional 15 seconds. Strain into coupe or martini glass and garnish with lemon wheel for garnish. Cheers!
