Maple Bourbon Sour

This is my all-time favorite bourbon cocktail. Developed by a cocktail bar in Wales called Milgi, the original recipe uses maple syrup to sweeten the cocktail. In the low-carb version, I use a couple of drops of natural maple flavoring with low-carb simple syrup, to achieve very similar results.

  1. Place all of the ingredients except for the orange twist into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Fill a glass tumbler with ice.
  2. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds until ice cold and frothy, then strain into the ice-filled tumbler.
  3. Garnish the drink with a twist of orange peel.

Chef’s Tip

• If you don’t have bourbon on hand, this recipe also works well with other types of whiskey.

• Although it sounds like an odd addition to a cocktail, the egg white offers a luxurious, smooth texture and a frothy top..
