Whiskey Sour Cocktail Bar Recipe Jordan Maas Money Investing

When life gives you lemons…Make a Whiskey Sour (or two).

I finally took the leap and decided to start experimenting with egg whites in some of my cocktails.  I also had a bag of lemons I needed to use – so naturally my first thought was – what kind of cocktails can I make.

The obvious choice was a Whiskey Sour.  I’ve noticed in my city – it’s tough to find places that make a solid Whiskey Sour.  Some places are great – others not so much – but when done right- they are a delicious treat – with my favorite spirit – BOURBON.

Since this was my first attempt at using egg whites in a drink, I wanted to make sure I got it right – so I followed the recipe from the Death & Co Cocktail book. ( An Amazing book for anyone who enjoys cocktails & spirits).

The recipe calls for:

2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon

.75 oz Lemon Juice

.75 oz Simple Syrup

1 Egg White

The ingredients are all added to a cocktail shaker & dry shaken.  Then ice is added, and shaken again.

The first one I made  I strained into a rocks glass over ice(pictured above), the second one I made I double strained into a coupe. (picture below).

Now that I am confident I can make a Whiskey Sour as good as most restaurants I’ve tried – I will refrain from ordering these while I am out.  My big concern now is that my budget for eggs & lemons may be going up substantially this year!

Cheers!
