I know it’s Sunday, the weather is crisp and cool. A hearty dish is probably the best option for today’s post but, the past week has been hectic. I am going to skip cooking today, and join friends outside for a cocktail. Share some good laughs, enjoy some nibbles and call it a day.
This is La Diva’s spin on a classic whiskey sour. This is her sexy drink that she calls “Heartthrob”. You can check out her sassy and fun blog at ladivacucina.blogspot.com . If you live in the South Florida area, don’t forget to register for her cooking and cocktails classes.
Honestly, I have not been a fan of bourbons and whiskeys. No reason, probably a lack of experience and appreciation. This cocktail is proof that I have a lot to learn. This drink is both a sweet and sour. Make no mistake, this drink is smooth and it promises to deliver a punch if you are not careful.
La Diva’s Heartthrob
2 ounces cherry whiskey
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
1 teaspoon raw egg white (use organic free range)
1 scoop ice
Put all ingredients in a shaker and vigorously shake until frothy.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
