Whiskey Sour Cocktail Recipe


Way back when the drinking age in the United States was 18 years of age. And, way back then, in my misspent youth, I preferred two cocktails above all others: a Midori Sour, and a Whiskey Sour. The classic Whiskey Sour cocktail is simply a phenomenal drink. It is a little bit sweet, a little bit tart – the perfect mix! So, I thought I’d share an old Whiskey Sour recipe.

The Whiskey Sour Cocktail is an old-fashioned cocktail beverage made up of bourbon whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup and a raw egg that dates back to the 19th century – the 1870s to be exact – when a recipe published in the Waukesha (Wisconsin) Plain Dealer newspaper in 1870. I have no idea who was first credited with concocting this delicious beverage, but I would like to thank them!

Notes:

• The raw egg white can gross some people out (or at least make people a but squeamish). I get that. It actually “makes” this drink, but it is still pretty darned good whiskey sour recipe even if you decide to make it without the raw egg white.

• Do not use a sour mix to make a whiskey sour. Ick. And, it is unnecessary since making your own “sour” is so easy to do.

• If you do not know how to rim a cocktail glass, click here for instructions. I listed lemon for the wet in this cocktail (again for sweet and tart), but you can rim with whiskey or simple syrup if you prefer.

To make an individual drink, the ratio is 4-2-1 with the 4 being cognac, the 2 being Cointreau and the 1 lemon juice.

I cannot emphasize the ice enough. If you make an individual drink in a shaker, make certain the shaker is filled with ice before adding the ingredients. And let it sit for a few moments prior to pouring.

Even Hubby, who love straight Cognac, likes this drink finding it smooth and delicious.

You can substitute Brandy for Cognac, and Triple Sec for Cointreau, but why would you want to? I do however, advise trying a maraschino cherry or three as a garnish in the bottom of your glass instead of a lemon edge. The drink becomes much sweeter!


As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.
