The Whiskey Sour, a classic cocktail of Bourbon, Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup and a raw egg that dates back to the 19th century.

Prep Time:5 minutes

Ingredients:

3 oz Bourbon Whiskey
2 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup

Directions:

• Rim a whiskey (or cocktail) glass with lemon for the wet, sugar for the dry (if desired)
• Place a maraschino cherry at the bottom of the glass.
• In a cocktail shaker, shake the raw egg white thoroughly (20-30 times).
• Add the simple syrup, whiskey and lemon juice to the cocktail shaker; shake until well combined.
• Fill the shaker half way with ice; shake thoroughly.
• Allow the shaker to sit 2-3 minutes before pouring. This will allow the ice to melt into the drink a bit.
• Strain into your prepared cocktail glass.

Way back when, the drinking age in the US was 18. And in my youth, I preferred two cocktails above all others: a Midori Sour, and a Whiskey Sour.

So, I thought I’d share an old Whiskey Sour recipe.

A few notes: the raw egg can gross some people out. I get that. It actually “makes” this drink, but it is still pretty darned good even without the raw egg.

Don’t use a sour mix. Ick. Unnecessary since making your own “sour” is so easy to do.

The Whiskey Sour is a very old, classic drink. The Whiskey Sour dates back to the 1870s. It is a sweet drink with a bit of a sharp tang. Totally delicious!


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

  1. Totally admitting I’m not an experienced drinker, a rather dull one. Just give me a shot of fireball and I’m good. So actually the fact that I even read this post was a little out of character.
    But….’place dough balls 2′ apart on cookie sheet’…I’m seriously lost here. But if there’s drinking that involves cookies, I’m in!
