Instructions

The Midnight Fog Sour is a complex, multi-dimensional cocktail that begins with a smoky introduction, unfolds into a rich tapestry of bitterness and herbal notes, and finishes with a refreshing minty zest. This beverage is perfect for those who appreciate a drink that takes them on a journey of flavors. Served in a chilled old-fashioned glass, it's as much a pleasure to look at as it is to sip. Ingredients: - 1.5 oz Islay Scotch Whisky (for that initial smoky flavor) - 0.5 oz Fernet-Branca (to introduce a bitter, herbal quality) - 0.75 oz Fresh lemon juice (for a sour element) - 0.5 oz Simple syrup (to balance the sourness) - 0.25 oz Crème de menthe (for a refreshing, minty finish) - 1 Egg white (optional, for a frothy texture and to smooth out the flavors) - 3-4 Drops of Angostura bitters (for garnish and an extra layer of complexity) - Fresh mint leaf (for garnish) - Ice Directions: 1. If using the egg white, start by dry shaking (shaking without ice) the Scotch, Fernet-Branca, lemon juice, simple syrup, crème de menthe, and egg white vigorously. This is to ensure the egg white is fully emulsified and frothy. 2. Add ice to the shaker and shake again vigorously until the cocktail is well chilled. 3. Strain the mixture into your chilled old-fashioned glass filled with a large ice cube (for slower dilution). 4. Carefully add the drops of Angostura bitters on the foam created by the egg white. 5. Garnish with a fresh mint leaf, allowing its aroma to enhance the minty finish as you sip. 6. Enjoy the layered complexity of the Midnight Fog Sour, from its smoky beginnings to its refreshing end. The Midnight Fog Sour is both a delight to the senses and a testament to the art of mixology. It's ideal for a sophisticated evening or as a signature drink that's sure to impress at any gathering.
