Aaand… another sour cocktail – this time I had lemons to use up. I love the combination of smoky, sweet bourbon and crisp, tart lemons – somehow it all blends together perfectly. It seems like the perfect thing to knock back before dinner.
2 0z bourbon
1 oz fresh lemon juice
0.5 oz simple syrup
Dash of egg white (optional, I prefer it without)
Shake with ice and then strain into a glass with more ice. Garnish with lemon rind and a maraschino cherry.
