Have a Drink: Whiskey Sour
Whiskey Sour cocktail | Relampago’s Rating:
This weekend, here’s how you can whip up a recipe for a nice Whiskey Sour. Some recipes call for using an egg white or pineapple juice, but this recipe is a little different. It lives up to the “sour” claim more so than other recipes. (Moreover, an egg white with whiskey just didn’t sound as appealing to me.)
This is another cocktail that has been around for a long time. Some history of the Whiskey Sour:
The oldest historical mention of a whiskey sour was published in the Wisconsin newspaper, Waukesha Plain Dealer, in 1870. In 1962, the Universidad del Cuyo published a story, citing the Peruvian newspaper El Comercio de Iquique, which indicated that Elliott Stubb created the “whisky sour” in 1872.
- 1 1/2 oz. whiskey (or bourbon)
- 1-oz. lemon juice
- 1-oz. sugar
- 2 oz. water
- 1 maraschino cherry
- Crushed ice
Combine lemon juice and sugar, then dilute with water and stir to dissolve sugar to make sour mix. Combine whiskey (or bourbon) and sour mix in a glass with ice. Stir, garnish with cherry, and enjoy!
