This Cinnamon Tequila Sour is made with simple ingredients like tequila, cinnamon and lemon and will leave your tastebuds wanting more than one drink!
UMMM what. I didn’t even know what a tequila sour was. ….which is embarrassing right? I googled “tequila drink with egg white” because THAT’S what I had created, and apparently that is a tequila sour. If Google says it’s true, then it must be.
See the thing is, I had a similar drink at Ace Hotel a few weeks ago. It’s one of my favorite cocktails because, as much as I love margaritas (and I DO love them), sometimes I like to switch it up. This cinnamon tequila sour is so, so perfect for those times when you want tequila, but something different than your average marg.
Oh! Most likely as you’re reading this I’m either A) on my way to New York or B) already in New York just frolicking around with Miguel. We’re in New York today and then headed to Barcelona tomorrow morning! If you’re wondering why we’re flying out of New York, it’s because it was—not surprisingly—WAY cheaper than flying out of Pittsburgh. Regardless, I’m getting excited! I think I’m extra pumped because I didn’t take a vacation last year, so this trip is going to feel extra enjoyable.
I also figured I’d share this drink recipe with you as a way to kick off my trip, and also as a plea for airlines to start serving tequila sours. No? Is that asking too much?
How do we feel about egg whites in our cocktails? The first time I ever tried it was when I was in college working at a restaurant. My manager let myself and the other employees preview one of the new cocktails the bar was going to be serving, and I remember thinking that putting egg white in a drink was so weird, but when I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised. Being the texture freak that I am, it was love at first sip. SO FROTHY!
