Drink of the Week – Bourbon Sour from Canon in Seattle

Next time you pay a visit to Seattle make sure you check out Canon, the city’s hot new bar owned by Canadian bartender Jamie Boudrea. Named one of the World’s Best Bars, Canon is a whiskey and bitters ‘emporium’ and has become the place to go or a serious drink in Seattle.

Our favourite cocktail was the a Bourbon Sour prepared by Seattle’s most famous bartender Murray Stenson, named “Best Bartender in America” at Tales of the Cocktail in 2010. Try the Bourbon Sour at home by mixing your favourite bourbon, fresh lemon juice, sugar, and a dash of egg white. Shake and serve either straight or over ice. The traditional garnish is half an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.
