2 oz (60 ml) Knob Creek Bourbon
¾ oz (22 ml) lemon juice
¾ oz (22 ml) simple syrup*
1 egg white (optional)
all-natural maraschino cherry and orange wheel, for garnish
- In a cocktail shaker, combine bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white (if using). If using egg white, first shake “dry” (without ice) to mix. Then add cubed ice and shake vigorously. Fine strain neat into a cocktail glass, or strain over cubed ice into a rocks glass. Top with a “flag” garnish (cherry and half an orange wheel skewered onto a cocktail pick).
- * 1:1 ratio of sugar dissolved in boiling water. Allow to cool before using.
