As the winter chill sets in, there’s nothing quite like a cozy evening spent by the fireplace, wrapped in a blanket with a bourbon cocktail in hand. Embrace the spirit of the season with a delightful Winter Bourbon Ginger Snap cocktail, a blend of rich flavors that will feel like a world of comfort.
- 2 oz Bourbon
- 1 oz Ginger Syrup
- 0.75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1 Egg White
- Ground Cinnamon (for garnish)
How To Make It
- Shake it Up: In a cocktail shaker, combine the bourbon, ginger syrup, fresh lemon juice, and egg white.
- Dry Shake: Shake the mixture vigorously without ice for about 10-15 seconds. This helps emulsify the egg white for a velvety texture.
- Ice it Down: Add ice to the shaker and shake again for another 10-15 seconds to chill the mixture.
- Strain and Pour: Double-strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe glass to remove any ice chips.
- Finishing Touch: Garnish with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon for that extra touch of winter warmth.
The Winter Bourbon Ginger Snap cocktail is a harmonious blend of the bold, oaky notes of bourbon and the spicy sweetness of ginger syrup, balanced by the bright acidity of fresh lemon juice. The addition of egg white not only gives the drink a silky texture but also enhances the overall mouthfeel.
This winter elixir is the perfect companion for festive gatherings and intimate evenings alike. Pair it with a crackling fireplace, soft jazz music, or your favorite winter read. The warmth of the bourbon and the zing of ginger make it an ideal drink for sipping and savoring the moment.
