Nils and Dave were featured in am New York this week. They put together several delicious bourbon drinks and I’ll include my favorite here:
For the serious mixologist: Bourbon Pecan Sour
2 oz Maker’s Mark
1 1/2 oz pecan syrup**
1/2 oz lemon juice
½ oz simple syrup (optional – it will sweeten the drink considerably)
pinch of salt
** For the pecan syrup:
200 grams water
3 grams TIC Pretested Ticaloid 210S (ticgums.com is a good place to find it)
130 grams pecan oil
200 grams sugar
Method for the Pecan Syrup:
Hydrate the Ticaloid 210S in the allspice-infused water with a hand blender. Add pecan oil and blend till smooth.
Add sugar and blend till smooth. This syrup can be stored until needed. It will separate over time, but can be stirred back together by hand.
Method For the Sour:
In a mixer, combine Maker’s Mark, pecan syrup, lemon juice, simple syrup if using and pinch of salt with ice. Shake, strain and serve.
If the idea of using Ticaloid in a drink is intimidating to you, come to class.
