​Whiskey Cocktails: How to Make an Awesome Whiskey Sour!

A whiskey sour is made with whiskey (of course!), lemon juice, sugar and, if desired, an egg white. Not too sure about the egg part? Here are two recipes – one with the egg and one without.

Whiskey Sour (With Egg)

  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • ice

Combine all ingredients in a drink shaker. Shake hard to froth the egg! Pour into a cocktail glass. You can garnish with a maraschino cherry or an orange slice.

Whiskey Sour (Egg MIA)

  • 2 ounces whiskey 
  • 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 to 3/4 ounces simple syrup (get Chef Gigi's recipe here)
  • ice

Put all ingredients into a drink shaker. Shake! Pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and/or orange slice.

I think the secret is to pick the Whiskey that you prefer. I think a Kentucky bourbon adds a nice touch. What taste do you Elisa All 30SecondMom Donna John like?
Donna John
I like TX Whiskey, which is made in Fort Worth, Texas. But you can't go wrong with a good Kentucky bournon, @dieteraschmitz.

Oh, we drank TX when we were in Dallas, Donna John! It was great. Around here, we have a local company called FEW Spirits that makes a damn good whiskey. Maybe Dieter Schmitz will make me one for tonight's #30SecondMom Happy Hour, LOL!
