Whiskey Sour Recipe

The whiskey sour is a very popular drink recipe. It's one of the best classic cocktails and is very easy to mix up, forming the base for the entire family of sour drinks. There are also a variety of adjustments you can make to perfectly suit your taste.

As the name suggests, this cocktail is sour, but the sweetness of some whiskeys and the simple syrup offset and complement its tartness. Balance is key with the whiskey sour. It is best to stick to the pours suggested in the recipe, give it a taste, then adjust your next drink as needed.

Just in case you need a reason to mix up this drink, National Whiskey Sour Day is August 25th.


* 1 1/2 ounces ​whiskey
* 1 1/2 ounces ​lemon juice (fresh)
* 3/4 ounce ​simple syrup
* Optional: ​egg white
* Garnish: ​​maraschino cherry or lemon peel


The key to a great whiskey sour is to use fresh lemon juice. Bottled lemon juices are either too sweet or too sour and they will significantly affect the quality of your drink.

Add Egg White

A traditional recipe for a whiskey sour includes an egg white. This tends to tame the sourness of the drink and make it a bit smoother. The use of raw egg is a matter of personal choice, though. It has fallen out of favor for many drinkers because of the potential for salmonella, though the risks are very minimal.

How Strong Is the Whiskey Sour?

Assuming that you pour an 80-proof whiskey into a whiskey sour, it is a relatively mild 14 percent alcohol by volume (28 proof). This is about half the strength of a Manhattan, so in comparison, the sour is a lightweight.

When using egg, it is generally preferred to serve the drink on the rocks. You will also need to put some serious shake into the drink and do so for at least 30 seconds to ensure it gets mixed properly.
