About this Cocktail

Beautiful drink and a hell of an upgrade from a traditional whiskey sour. The one you see here was made by Dan Stone on a gorgeous, sunny Saturday.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz. rye
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 3/4 oz. honey syrup
  • 1/4 oz. Maraschino
  • 3 dashes angostura
  • 1 egg white
Preparation:

Dry shake all ingredients, add ice – 1 big cube works nice for frothing up the the egg whites – and shake again vigorously.

Garnish with a slice of lemon peel and a few drops of bitters.

Serve over rocks.

    What do you use for the honey syrup? Is regular honey too strong?
  • Brandon Herring
    Equal parts honey and water. Heat the water, add the honey, dissolve and cool. Regular honey is too thick, the syrup will incorporate better into the drink.
  • Steven Kennedy
    Really nice.
  • Jamie Clayton
    Any tips on measuring honey or using honey to make the syrup? It's always a mess, sticky, and hard to measure.
  • Brandon Herring
    I find a squeeze bottle makes it a bit easier to measure out correct amount.
  • Santana Kawe-Waddick
    Lovely potion!!
  • Larry R
    As a newbie, I have to ask: when the recipe mentions Maraschino does that mean Luxardo Maraschino or its equivalent?
  • Jennie Hildre
    I used a "Spiced Honey" Syrup. Loved the added complexity!
  • Louis Muscato

    What is your maraschino recipe ?

    The maraschino in the recipe is for Luxardo maraschino liqueur, or an equivalent.

    Just made it, added Luxardo Liqueur and Luxardo cherries. AMAZING.
