At Canon, Jamie's bar in Seattle, WA, they take pride in the sours they create each and every night. Like many cocktails served at Canon, sours are made with 2:1, rich simple syrup. As Jamie has professed in passed episodes, rich simple syrup provides not only sweetness but a great mouth feel without diluting the drink as much as a typical 1:1 simple syrup might. In the Chamomile Sour, Scotch is infused with the plentiful, calming herb to create a truly delightful, rich, yet light take on the classic sour style cocktail.
1 egg white
2 oz chamomile infused scotch
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

Add all ingredients to mixing tin.
Froth or whip with a dairy frother or dry shake to emulsify.
