Boston Sour

Boston Sour cocktail with bourbon whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white

The Boston Sour is just a Whiskey Sour with egg white added – but oh, what a difference an egg makes! The texture is velvety-smooth, and the foam from the egg white carries the beautiful scents of lemon and bourbon (or rye or blended whiskey, if you prefer).

We like to use a technique called “dry-shaking” when we make drinks with egg white. To dry-shake, add all your ingredients to a shaker without ice, and shake vigorously for ten seconds or so. Then open your shaker, add ice, and shake again. The dry shake helps the egg to build up airy volume before the ice and cold water have a chance to water it down.

We always double-strain egg drinks: once through the shaker’s strainer, and then straight through a fine wire-mesh strainer into the serving glass. This ensures that no unwanted eggy solids make it into the drink.

Instructions

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
