Not sure what to drink before your dinner party? Today we are recommending a classic for this sultry summer…
Whiskey Sour is a bourbon-based pre-dinner cocktail with lemon juice, sugar and egg white. It is an official cocktail of the IBA.
Whiskey sour is a cocktail containing bourbon, lemon juice, sugar, and optionally a dash of egg white or cocktail foam. With egg white, it is sometimes called Boston Sour. With a few bar spoons of full-bodied red wine floating on top, it is often referred to as a New York Sour. It is shaken and served straight or over ice.
The traditional topping is a half slice of orange and a maraschino cherry.The original version is made with Limón de Pica.
A variant of the whiskey sour is Ward 8, which is often made from bourbon or rye whiskey and includes lemon and orange juices and grenadine syrup as a sweetener. Albumen sometimes employed in other whiskey sours is not usually included.
Here is the IBA recipe for your whiskey sour, and remember: always use a measuring cup to calibrate portions!
45 ml bourbon
25 ml fresh lemon juice
20 ml sugar syrup
20 ml egg white (optional)
Pour all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a glass. If served “On the rocks,” strain the ingredients into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice.
If using egg whites, shake a little harder to release and incorporate the egg white foam.
Garnish with half orange slice and maraschino cherry, possibly use orange zest.
