African Solstice Sour



Jump to recipe

The rich taste of rooibos and a sweet dash of honey makes this whiskey sour go down smooth.


  • 1 Tea Forté African Solstice tea pyramid infuser, or 1 tsp loose tea
  • 2 ounces American bourbon whiskey
  • 6 ounces water
  • 12 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 whole nutmeg (or ground nutmeg)


  1. For the Honey Tea Syrup: In a mug, steep one pyramid infuser or 1 tsp loose tea in 6 ounces of near-boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Remove infuser (or loose tea leaves), add honey and stir until completely dissolved.
  3. For the cocktail: Pour whiskey, lemon, egg white, and 2 tablespoons of the honey tea syrup into a Boston shaker and add enough ice to fill to shaker three-quarters full.
  4. Cap and shake hard for 15 seconds.
  5. Strain into a chilled cocktail coupe glass.
  6. Grate fresh nutmeg on top of the foam, or sprinkle with ground nutmeg.

Yields: 1 cocktail
