Nelson's White Whiskey Fizz

This is a fun and involved drink to make. This drink is a great morning glory/day after drink, but is just as good the night before. It’s got vanilla, chocolate, cream and lemon with a white whiskey back bone.

Nelson's Green Brier Distillery's White Whiskey Fizz Recipe

Nelson's White Whiskey Fizz

1 ½ ozGreen Brier Tennessee White Whiskey
¾ ozLiquor 43
1 ozHeavy Cream
¾ ozFresh Lemon Juice
1 ozSimple Syrup
1 Egg White
4Dashes Scrappy’s Chocolate Bitters
Club Soda

Shake and strain.  Glass: Collins.  Garnish: Chocolate Bitters.  Ice: None.

  • Add to your shaker the egg white and the lemon juice and then shake these two ingredients, without ice, by themselves for a few moments. We call this a mime shake.
  • Now add the rest of the ingredients and mime shake again for a few moments. Why? Because some of these ingredients are thick and rich and hard to combine so the better you mix the drink the better the drink will be (within reason, don’t go getting a blender for Pete’s sake)
  • Now add ice to the shaker, large chunks or cubes are best, and shake. REALLY SHAKE! Shake with long hard strokes until your good arm is tired and then switch to your other arm and shake some more. NOW REPEAT. Hand it around to friends to have them shake. Shake it until it feels thick and the ice is either dissolved or until the ice sounds like it’s just tiny bits pinging off the shaker walls.

WARNING: Your shaker may become covered with ice as you shake, that’s fine, but make sure you have a good grip on it the entire time. More than one shaker has flown across a bar causing havoc due to a weak grip.

  • Strain the frothy tipple into a tall Collins glass and rest for two minutes, you deserve it. 
  • Carefully pour an ounce or two of club soda through the center of the foamy head on the drink. If you’re a good shaker the head should be thick. If you are daring...use a very slender Collins glass and you can actually make the head rise like a column above the rim of the glass.
  • Garnish with 15-20 drops of Scrappy’s Chocolate bitters on the head of the drink.
  • Use a straw or go for the milk mustache, it’s your call!
