Between drinking at the office on Friday and going to a beer event on Saturday, it’s safe to say that I was hungover all weekend. I would love to say that I created this cocktail is my own creation, but I didn’t have the stomach to get out of bed, let alone make a cocktail and plan a mini-photoshoot. So for this week, your Monday tipple is coming from this blog I discovered over the weekend. With grapefruit juice, sake and egg white (my favorite!), why not make this drink and pretend your weekend was one day longer.
from Wide Eyed Glass
- 1.5 ounces Sake (we used a junmai)
- 1 ounce Shochu (pictured above)
- .5 ounce grapefruit juice
- 1 barspoon of real maple syrup
- 1 egg white
- dash of Peychaud’s Bitters
Chill two small tumblers in the freezer.
Dry shake the egg white in a cocktail shaker for a minute. Add ice and all additional ingredients. Shake for at least 2 minutes more (the longer you shake it the more creamy and frothy it will get). Strain into your two glasses and garnish with some grapefruit (or like we did here- a piece of pickled ginger). Serve immediately.
Makes 2 small drinks.
