Sour Shou - A tea based mocktail
For our Sour Shou, we used Shou Puerh as a base, which has notes of peat and vanilla that lend themselves perfectly to a classic Whisky Sour. Makes 2 drinks
1 1/2 Tbsp simple syrup (we like to keep this on hand. make with equal parts sugar and water. boil until sugar is disolved)
1 Egg white
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
Lemon and cherry to garnish
1. Brew tuocha in 1 1/4 cups boiled spring or filtered water. Steep for 5 minutes. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain into a heatproof container and allow to cool.
2. Pour cooled tea, simple syrup, lemon juice, egg white into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until the outside of the shaker feels chilled.
3. Strain and pour into serving glasses. (on the rocks or straight up -its your preference) garnish with lemon and cherry.
