alcohol, cocktail, drink, whiskey


Originally taken from the zestful kitchen


  • 2 ounces Rye or bourbon whiskey
  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce egg white (optional)
  • ¾ ounce pure maple syrup (or simple syrup)
  • ½ ounce dry red wine


Add whiskey, lemon juice, egg white and syrup in a cocktail shaker and dry shake (without ice) for 20 seconds. Add a few cubes of fresh ice and shake 30 seconds until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.

Slowly pour wine over the back of a bar spoon so that the wine floats on top of the drink.
