An original classic cocktail recipe, the Whiskey Sour is a favorite in the bar scene and one easily made at home. The original recipe calls for whiskey, lemon, sugar, and egg whites. Today, the egg white is optional and can be substituted by aquafaba (chickpea brine) or excluded altogether. This recipe is a great first-time cocktail for the uninitiated since it's a well-balanced drink.
60ml Bourbon Whiskey
30ml Lemon Juice
30ml Simple Syrup
15ml Egg White or Aquafaba
Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake without ice. Add ice and shake until well chilled. Then double strain into an old fashioned (rocks) glass over ice. Garnish with a lemon slice and a maraschino cherry.
