Sweet Tea Sour

Where: Brooklyn Star
Neighborhood: Williamsburg
Address: 593 Lorimer St.

Bartender Says: "The tea and egg white combine for a great frothy texture and a sweet and sour balance. The idea came about while trying sweet tea made for me by people from down south. To say I found it sweet is an understatement. This was a way to take a southern porch drink and combine it with a classic cocktail to make something a little different." — Simon Gibson, Bartender/Co-owner of Wilfie & Nell and The Brooklyn Star

Recipe:

2 oz. Four Roses Bourbon 
1 oz. sweet tea syrup
1 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. egg white

Create tea syrup by allowing two large Lipton iced tea bags sit in three pints of boiling water for 30 minutes. If left too long, it gets bitter. Remove tea and add 1 quart of sugar while the water is still hot. Stir to dissolve and allow to cool.
