Winter Whiskey Sour

Creamy layered cocktail in tall glass

Last Updated on

These pistachio cocktails are sure to please for the holidays, or all winter long!

 

 

We do believe that cocktails should have a fair amount of booze, maybe some sugar, and we love the idea of using super foods in them too! Super foods such as pistachios, can make your cocktails “better” for you, right?

Pistachio Cocktail

Maybe it was because pistachio cocktails don’t appear on menus often in our experience, maybe it’s the fact that the shelled nut is one of our favorite snacks? Or, maybe it’s just that we haven’t used this ingredient in a cocktail and are very excited to share this recipe with you.

Pistachios are heart-healthy, have antioxidants, are an excellent source of fiber and they make a pretty tasty cocktail, too! We wanted to use whole pistachios in our simple syrup, and wanted a rich flavor of the nut for sure.

There have been a few pistachio cocktails that have been popping up in our research lately, so we wanted to check out this trend! Nuts have always been a great bit of flavor in cocktails, such as our Peanut Butter and Jelly Old Fashioned!

We started out with a 12 year aged whiskey that was dark and rich and brought a lot to the party for sure. We ended up with a fun little whiskey sour from this base liquor. To the whiskey we added green chartreuse, lemon juice and the pistachio simple syrup. First thing we thought of was winter and the warming flavors and spices that were in this cocktail.

Egg white was then added and shaken up with the cocktail. Egg whites are important in cocktails because they soften the citrus and join the other flavors. We find it gives it texture, almost a velvety finish, and who doesn’t like to look at that foamy decadent top?

 

 

 

 

 

We sure do, and hope you do too!
