Hazardous ingredients

Pasteurised egg white is potentially hazardous for those with an allergy, intolerance or medical condition.

To make Sugar-free sweetener:


Stir 2 cups of powdered Xylitol Sweetener into 1 cup of water in a pan over low heat. Allow to cool, bottle and store your sugar-free sweetener in a refrigerator. The XyloSweet brand of Xylitol Sweetener performs well.

Review:

This Whiskey Sour isn't very sour and those wanting a drier drink should consider reducing the sweetener to nearer 15ml (1/2oz).

Adding a couple of dashes aromatic bitters greatly contributes to the cocktail's flavour but this also adds trace amounts of sugar.

History:

Adapted from the classic serve by yours truly (Simon Difford) in January 2019.
