Whiskey Sour recipe

Was shown the light this past New Years and have been enjoying whiskey sours ever since. Keep forgetting the recipe though.

Homer Sourball

Pour 2 parts bourbon, 1 part fresh lemon juice (or lime in a pinch), ½ part simple syrup, and ½ part egg white in to a shaker and shake for 20-30 seconds. The proteins in the egg generate significant foam and this will add pressure, so hold it tight. Next, add cubed ice and shake hard until very cold. Strain into a tumbler with fresh ice, and garnish with an orange peel twist if you’ve got it.

Note: Aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas) also works if you don’t want to use egg whites. The egg white from one US large egg is roughly 1 oz, so this is a great cocktail to make in batches of 2.

Simon Lamb on his practice

I believe that a worthwhile clinic must have a purpose to compliment its existence; not only the everyday purpose it was designed for, but beyond that, a practice must improve the quality of the field it belongs to and the athletic community it works for.

A little while back, Sam showed me a video on BBC sport with runner Simon Lamb about how running has helped him manage his mental health problems. He then showed me Simon’s blog, Six Seconds High. Though I’m not a runner (and unfortunately probably never will be due to knee stuff), I really liked reading his thoughts about running, sport, mental health and how he runs his sport therapy clinic.
