Whiskey Sour is something fancy, and an ideal choice for special summer evenings. A sour is basically nothing more than a high-percentage alcohol with lemon and powdered sugar.
The mixture is totally simple as connoisseurs have been confirmed since the 19th century. Since then, it has been experimented with all sorts of fire but nothing seemed to beat the classic whiskey sour. You can try the following recipe also with vodka, rum, or gin as you like.
Do not even consider to buy it as a ready-mix if you see it somewhere! That is not worth it as you notice how easy the recipe is. Even if you are freshmen in the cocktail field, you can carry it off.
When considering whiskey, you should definitely go to Bourbon’s. Jacky, Jim Beam and Associates will be good choices. There will be probably people who would go for Scottish whiskey as well, but if you ask for our suggestion, this will be a little pity for the 12-year-old Single Malt, that you may have gotten for your birthday.
We will now show you how to conjure the perfect Whisky Sour each and every time.
