The Classic Whiskey Sour recipe you need to try!
The Whiskey Sour is one of the most popular sour drinks and rightfully so, it is a great cocktail! It is a classic recipe that has been around for years and is very easy to mix up.
It is sour, yes, but the sweetness of some whiskeys and the simple syrup will offset and certainly complement the tartness. Balance is key, so it is best to stick to the pours suggested in the recipe, give it a taste, then adjust your next drink to suit your taste.
If you add soda to this drink you will have a John Collins.
Forget sour mixes and low-quality whiskeys. A classic Whiskey Sour recipe made with good whiskey, fresh lemon juice and simple syrup can be a drink to behold. You can even add an egg white for that little extra texture.
2 oz. whiskey ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice ¾ oz. simple syrup Egg white, optional Tools: shaker, strainer Glass: cocktail or sour Garnish: cherry and orange slice
