Have you ever wondered how you might turn up the heat on your cocktail game? With a few safety precautions… just in case… it turned out to be much easier than I thought it would be, and a fun way to take my mixology to the next level.
I give you my latest cocktail creation, made specifically for the use of my fave Bernzomatic Micro Torch and a fabulous intro into the world of Bourbon.
A modern take on an old Classic – The Boston Sour
INGREDIENTS + MATERIALS //
3 Oz Bourbon
2 Oz Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Oz Simple Syrup
1 Tbsp of Egg White
1 Tbsp Limoncello
1 Lemon for Garnish
Using a shaker, add Bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white along with ice. Shake well and strain into a cocktail coupe or double old fashioned. Add a float of Limoncello, pouring slowly over the back of a spoon so that it stays on the surface of your drink. Carefully light with your Bernzomatic Micro Torch and extinguish any flame after a few seconds. Garnish with a lemon slice and enjoy.
TIP // Ensure your work area is free of excess alcohol and any other potentially flammable items before you ignite your torch. Take all safety precautions when playing with fire. Burning down your house, for the sake of a fabulous drink experience, would be a terrible idea.
This recipe was created in partnership with Bernzomatic and is part of an ongoing series of projects here on ‘le blog’. Thank you for supporting the awesome-sauce brands that help bring fresh and fun new projects like this to The Design Confidential. I heart you guys!
