How to Make a Whiskey Sour...The Right Way!


How To Make Whiskey Sours

A couple of Summers ago, I fell in love with whiskey. Bourbon to be exact. I was in Maine at an artists retreat, camping in the forest. We had no access to a fridge, which meant no ice. Which meant no cocktails! Our only options for alcoholic libations where red wine---which is sort of gross in the humid Maine Summers---or liquor. Hence, my love of whiskey! Whiskey Sours soon became my favorite cocktail.

I never order them at bars however. Most bars use that disgusting sweet and sour mix to make their whiskey sours, which is gross. I did a bit of research and found the best recipe!

The right way to make a whiskey sour after the jump...


Ingredients



  • 2 Oz of Whiskey Bourbon (You could use Scotch if you prefer)
  • 1 Lemon, all of the juice
  • 2 Tsp Simple Syrup


Directions


Place all of the ingredients plus a hunk of ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake the crap out of it and pour into a glass. garnish with a cherry. Enjoy!

Great recipe. But no self respecting scotch drinker would mix scotch! Bourbon, or rye is the way to go depending on your geography.

Maybe I am not self respecting but a good scotch mixed witha good sour mix......very tasty. :)

The bars that use "sour mix" have no care for craft. I like ur recipe for camping maybye but u need real fresh made sour mix with egg white included for a serious whiskey sour. i agree with what ya mean though bro

If you add egg whites it makes it a Boston sour and not a whiskey sour just fyi

All of you are wrong. It is 1/2 lemon (juice) 1/2 lime (juice) honey to taste and Jack Black. You'll love it.

I like the part "Shake the crap out of it", that's what the old man did every time.

This recipe sounds good but can I instead mix it on a blender with crushed ice?
