Stranger Things Cocktail - Eleven's Obsession
Stranger Things season 2 is right around the corner. This cocktail is inspired by the character Eleven, and her obsession for nomming super hard on Eggo waffles. This cocktail basically tastes like breakfast.
- 2 oz Bourbon Whiskey
- 3/4 oz Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 whole organic egg
- 1 dash Chocolate Bitters
- 1 Half Eggo Waffle
Mix the Cocktail: Combine the bourbon, maple syrup, whole egg, and dash of bitters into a cocktail shaker and do not fill with ice yet. Dry shake for 20 seconds to incorporate the egg and other ingredients. After dry shaking the cocktail, open the cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake for another 10-15 seconds to chill.
Strain the Cocktail: Using a hawthorne strainer and fine mesh strainer, strain the cocktail over the fine mesh strainer into a coupe glass. (The purpose of double straining is to ensure you remove any ice shards or remaining solids from the cocktail).
Garnish the Cocktail: Toast 1 Eggo waffle until golden brown and crispy. Cut it in half and set on top of the coupe glass. Lightly drizzle maple syrup on top of the waffle. Enjoy!
