Simple yet satisfying Whiskey Sour recipe

Ah, the Whiskey Sour, a classic cocktail that's been around since the 1800s. It's said that sailors used to mix lemon juice with their daily ration of whiskey to prevent scurvy, and thus, the Whiskey Sour was born. Now, it's a staple at any bar, and for good reason - it's delicious!

To make a perfect whiskey sour, it's essential to achieve the right balance. This recipe for whiskey sour ensures that you get the perfect combination of zesty lemon juice, smooth and aromatic bourbon, and sweet simple syrup. The result is a refreshing cocktail that's not overly sweet or too tart.

It's optional, but we love adding the egg white in the mix for that frothy goodness on top!

Ingredients Checklist

✅ 2 oz whiskey (bourbon or rye, your choice!)

✅ 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

✅ 1/2 oz honey

✅ 1/2 ounce egg white (optional)

✅ Garnish: Angostura bitters


  1. 1. Add bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white, if using, to a shaker and dry-shake for 30 seconds without ice.
  2. 2. Add ice and shake it like a polaroid picture again until well-chilled.
  3. 3. Strain into a rocks glass or a coupe.
  4. 4. Garnish with 3 or 4 drops of Angostura bitters.

There you have it, a simple yet satisfying Whiskey Sour recipe. So go ahead and impress your friends with your newfound mixology skills.
