Mix It Up: Fire in the Hull

A spicy twist on a whiskey sour from one of San Francisco's best bars.

If you like spicy cocktails, you're gonna love this number from Driftwood, an acclaimed neighborhood watering hole a few blocks from the bay in San Francisco. It's proven to be a hit with both staff and customers, with the bourbon's spice blending well with a creaminess from the egg whites. The end result: a spicy take on the whiskey sour.
