Whiskey sour mocktail
Try this non-alcoholic take on a whiskey sour, made with Assam leaf tea for a bourbon-like flavour note. It’s just as impressive as the real thing
- Serves: 1 person
- 25ml lemon juice
- ½egg white (see tip, below)
- ¾tbsp sugar syrup, or to taste
- ice cubes
- 1lemon slice and 1 cocktail cherry, to serve
- 1tsp Assam tea leaves
- ¼tsp vanilla extract
Step 1First, make the infusion. Tip the tea leaves into a heatproof teapot or jug and pour over 150ml boiled water from the kettle. Immediately strain through a fine mesh sieve into a second heatproof jug, discarding the tea leaves, so the tea doesn’t become too strong. Add the vanilla and leave to cool.
Step 2Pour 50ml of the cooled tea infusion into a cocktail shaker, then add the lemon juice, egg white, sugar syrup and a handful of ice. Shake until the outside of the shaker feels very cold.
Step 3Strain the mocktail into an ice-filled tumbler, then garnish with a slice of lemon and a cocktail cherry to serve.
