MurLarkey's Heritage whiskey has a great corn scent and it is unbelievably dry with a whiff of wood and wine. It really likes egg white and lemon juice. But this is no ordinary sour. The Rattlesnake has a bit of the Sazerac to it with the addition of Pernod.

Anise flavor is pretty strong and turns some people off. Fortunately, this recipe uses such a low proportion of Pernod that it doesn't register as anything other than a bit of spice. Any Whiskey Sour lover will enjoy this variation.
  • 2 oz. blended whiskey (MurLarkey Heritage used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 tsp. Pernod
Combine all ingredients with ice in a Shaker. Shake and strain into and Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice.
