The Whiskey Sour is, er, well, whiskey with sour stuff in it. Sooo, good-bye? Just kidding, when there is nothing to talk about, we make something to talk about.
This is another really, really old cocktail that is simple and has stayed relatively consistent with the ingredients until current day. It is definitely not the first sour out there, but it appears to have won the survival of the sour fittest contest against the brandy and gin sours.
Join us as we explore this staple of the cocktail world. We discuss sour things, whiskey things, and how bourbon sour was some kind of weird political insult.
The recipe is:
- 2 ounces of bourbon or rye whiskey
- 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice
- ¾ ounce of simple syrup
- Soda water
