This cocktail is the topic of one of the greatest debates in Mixology. Whiskey Sour: Egg Whites or No Egg Whites? While I see both sides, (and I absolutely won’t take a stand on what’s “correct”), I will tell you that personally I am a big fan of the egg white version of this drink. Granted, I’m also a fan of raw cookie dough, so you might say I like to live on the “wild” side…That said, there are some extra considerations to think about when using egg whites.
Last week we had guests over for dinner and took the occasion to offer them a cocktail. (With a home bar like this, it’s hard to avoid!) But Chris loves when this happens. It brings him back to his bartending days – and gives him free license to create something the guest will love. There wasn’t much time for trial and error, so Chris just went with a simple variation on a classic Mule, replacing the ginger beer with whatever he had on hand – which happened to be a tasty Pear Cider.
If that’s not a good reason behind a cocktail name, I don’t know what is. (Bitterness? Check!) Steve sent me this cocktail recipe a few weeks ago and I was very happy to share. As he explained, “I had taken several trips to New Orleans and wanted to do a New Orleans classic style cocktail but with Chicago ingredients.”So why Letherbee Bësk (formerly Letherbee Mälort)? “While the ingredients are adaptable, I do prefer to make this drink with Letherbee Bësk, a wormwood schnapps made in Chicago.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
