Lawry's The Prime Rib

Jesse Vanpoucke, the lead bartender at Lawry’s The Prime Rib in Chicago, has become fond of splitting the base in a Whiskey Sour between two whiskeys, Monkey Shoulder and Power’s, to lighten the drink’s profile. 

“What I love about this drink is how all the ingredients lean on each other—passion fruit to vanilla to light whiskey to apple,” says Vanpoucke. He quips that it’s also a nice hybrid drink if you happen to have brought a bottle of whiskey to a tropical island or an apple orchard.

This recipe originally appeared as part of “5 Easy Whiskey Sour Twists to Make Right Now.”

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce Monkey Shoulder scotch 
  • 1 ounce Power’s Irish whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce passion fruit liqueur (such as Giffard) 
  • 1 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 ounce vanilla syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 dash Greenbar apple bitters
  • Garnish: apple fan

Steps

  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.

  3. Garnish with an apple fan.
