The Silver Lining is a Joseph Schwartz original (he’s the founder of NYC’s fabulous Little Branch). A clever riff on the classic egg fizz template, with Licor 43 (or Tuaca, or another vanilla liqueur) providing a balanced sweetness and a compelling flavor.
Like all egg white (or aquafaba) drinks, you should double-strain it through both your shaker’s strainer and a fine mesh strainer.
- 1½ parts Rye whiskey or Bourbon or Blended whiskey
- ¾ part Vanilla liqueur
- ¾ part Lemon juice
- 1 part Egg white or Aquafaba
- 2 parts Sparkling water
Shake all ingredients (except the sparkling water) with ice, and double-strain into a tall ice-filled glass. Top with half of the sparkling water and stir to build up a good fizz. Wait a moment for it to subside, and top with the remaining sparkling water.
