A basic bourbon sour is a solid go-to cocktail. But why not turn things up a notch? We’re giving the classic cocktail a citrus twist (blood orange, to be exact) with the help of Young Kim, bartender at NYC’s The Flatiron Room.
What You Need:
- ½ ounce Campari
- ¾ ounce orange juice
- ¾ ounce sour mix
- 1 ounce egg whites
- 1½ ounces bourbon
- Orange zest
Step 1: Combine the Campari, orange juice, sour mix, egg whites and bourbon in a cocktail shaker.
Step 2: Give it all a good mix before adding ice and shaking again.
Step 3: Strain the cocktail into a glass and grate orange zest on top.
Step 4: Finish it off with exactly 8 drops of bitters (7 around the edge and one right in the middle). Run a toothpick through the drops for a heart effect. Cheers!
