Named after the iconic bewitched poison apple from Snow White, "I Tried It, Not Poison" is proven to be an invigorating concoction, rather than a tiring one.
It's a complex sipper inspired by the Moscow Mule, offering a lot of depth while remaining a light and refreshing combination of bourbon, apple shrub, egg whites, and ginger beer. The bourbon, Barrel #91 by Chattanooga Whiskey, was an easy choice due to its viscosity and high rye mash-bill. The baking spices are prevalent on the palate and pair nicely with the housemade ginger beer, which is then brightened with lime juice and apple shrub.
- 1.5 oz Chattanooga Whiskey “91” Bourbon
- .75 oz Apple Shrub (2 parts Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 part apple cider, 1 part maple syrup)
- .5 oz Lime Juice
- 1 egg white
- 2.5 oz House Made Ginger Beer
Shake all ingredients with kold draft cubes. Double strain and dry shake. Pour into a Collins glass, top with ginger beer, and garnish with an apple shuriken.
