La Diva's Heartthrob

I know it's Sunday, the weather is crisp and cool.  A hearty dish is probably the best option for today's post but, the past week has been hectic. I am going to skip cooking today, and join friends outside for a cocktail.  Share some good laughs, enjoy some nibbles and call it a day.

This is La Diva's spin on a classic whiskey sour.  This is her sexy drink that she calls "Heartthrob".  You can check out her sassy and fun blog at ladivacucina.blogspot.com .  If you live in the South Florida area, don't forget to register for her cooking and cocktails classes.

Honestly, I have not been a fan of bourbons and whiskeys. No reason, probably a lack of experience and appreciation.  This cocktail is proof that I have a lot to learn. This drink is both a sweet and sour. Make no mistake, this drink is smooth and it promises to deliver a punch if you are not careful.


La Diva's Heartthrob

Ingredients
2 ounces cherry whiskey
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
1 teaspoon raw egg white (use organic free range)
1 scoop ice

Directions:
Put all ingredients in a shaker and vigorously shake until frothy.

Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Enjoy!! Pin It

Almost every Sunday I have begun to count on a drink recipe from you! Well, maybe not Sundays, but very often. I so wish this was 10 years ago. I would be making them like crazy. I still make cocktails... but, no longer like crazy, if you know what I mean. Whiskey, though, is not my drink.

Susi said...

I'm not a big bourbon or whiskey fan (bad experience, don't ask LOL) but this drink does sound tasty! Maybe it's time to revisited those liquors ;o)

I remember that my grandmother used to serve whiskey sours. She would be astounded, and would probably immediately request one of these!

Cooking and COCKTAIL classes? Are you allowed to taste while you are "cooking"? Awesome!

farmlady said...

Cherry Whiskey? I guess I have been out of touch with drink fixing for way too long because I didn't know they made fruit flavored whiskey. Sounds wonderful.
I can't drink anymore because of some medications I take, but I miss the taste of bourbon and whiskey. This is such a pretty drink. Bet it tastes delicious. I will pass it on.

Chow and Chatter said...

My mother's cocktail of choice was always a whiskey sour. Cherry whiskey makes for an interesting twist. Looks great!

From the Kitchen said...

Do you live anywhere near Orlando? I want to stop by for a drink (or two or three) next time I visit my sister!! I can go out of my way by a couple hundred miles if necessary. Please put this one on the menu.

Best,
Bonnie

I love a whiskey sour but have to confess I haven't had one in years! Thanks for the reminder and for a modern version!

Renee Fontes said...

Barbara said...

I'm sending this immediately to my sister. It's her favorite drink!

Foodessa said...

Most certainly...if ever I make it to S. Florida...I'll be giving Laura La Diva a visit and not just for cocktails...I wanna be fed too ;o)

Velva, nice of you to share.

Ciao for now,
Claudia

Looks delicious! I've never seen cherry whiskey before. Maybe it would alter my view of whiskey too. I love the name.
