Pu-Erh Whisky Sour Cocktail

Pu-erh whisky sour cocktail recipe

Makes 1 cocktail.

This tea cocktail combines the earthiness of pu-erh tea with whisky and then uses fresh lemon to cut through this to give a well balanced and easy to drink cocktail.

You'll need

  • 50ml Bourbon whisky
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 teaspoons of pu-erh tea
  • 1 egg white
  • 7.5ml Agave syrup (1 teaspoon)
  • Ice
  • 1 sprig red currants

How to make

  1. For the Pu-erh infused whiskey: combine the tea and the bourbon in a jar or cup and cover. Let it steep for 2 to 4 hours to absorb the flavours of the pu-erh. For a stronger infusion, leave overnight.
  2. Add the fresh lemon juice, egg white, agave syrup, pu-erh infused whisky and ice into a cocktail shaker.
  3. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is cold.
  4. Strain into a short glass over ice.
  5. Garnish with a sprig of red currants.
