“When life gives you lemons, make Whiskey Sours.” – Unknown
Originally described in Jerry Thomas’ How to mix drinks in 1862 (the Old Testament in bartending), the Whiskey Sour is another easy go-to classic, which forms the base for the entire family of sour drinks. In its simplest, classic form, the sweet syrup and the sour lemon complement each other perfectly, creating a stage for the whiskey to shine on. The variety of whiskies that can be used is endless, but for newcomers we recommend the sweeter bourbon.
Shake, strain, enjoy. Life can be easy sometimes.
