If everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, then why can’t your Whiskey Sour be the same?
The Sour Irishman is an Irish-kissed riff on the classic Whiskey Sour. It uses the traditional recipe, but with Irish Whiskey instead of the traditional bourbon for an even smoother drink. In sticking with the classic recipe, we used an egg white to make our cocktail, but you can use Fee Brother Fee Foam in place of the egg or leave it out of the recipe altogether.
As an added tribute to the Emerald Isle, we included a shot of Crème De Mûre, a blackberry liqueur. Blackberries can be found growing in the wild and on farms all over rural Ireland, and picking the fruit is a fall tradition for the Irish. We even sprinkled some blackberries into our drink as a unique garnish.
