What's this?

Gentleman Jack features hints of banana, vanilla and caramel, making it the ideal whiskey for tiki cocktails. Peter Roccaforte takes advantage of this by adding some tropical elements to a classically constructed Whiskey Sour. The result is a cocktail that tastes fresh and familiar in the best possible way.

  • 1/2 oz Egg white
  • Garnish: Star anise
