Whiskey Sour Rezept

2 ounces Bourbon or Rye Whiskey (high-quality for best flavor)

  • 1 ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3/4 ounce Simple Syrup (or to taste)
  • 1 Egg White (optional, for a frothier texture)
  • Orange Wedge (for garnish)
  • Maraschino Cherry (for garnish, optional)

  • Instructions:

    1. Gather your ingredients. Make sure all your ingredients are chilled for the best results. A cold shaker will also help create a perfectly chilled drink.
    2. Combine liquids. In a cocktail shaker, add the whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup.
    3. Dry shake (optional). If you’re using egg white for a frothier texture, perform a dry shake first. Add the egg white to the shaker without ice and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. This helps break down the egg white and create a smoother texture.
    4. Shake with ice. Add ice to the shaker and shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds. You want the shaker to feel frosty cold.
    5. Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Double strain the cocktail using a Hawthorne strainer and a fine-mesh sieve to remove any ice chips or egg white chunks (if used).
    6. Garnish. Express the oils from an orange peel by squeezing it over the drink and discarding the peel. Alternatively, add a maraschino cherry for a classic touch.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    1. Can I substitute the bourbon or rye whiskey with another spirit?

    Yes, you can substitute other spirits like scotch or even tequila for a different flavor profile. However, these substitutions will change the taste of the final drink.

    Commercially prepared simple syrup works well. You can also make your own by combining equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan, heating it until the sugar dissolves, and then letting it cool completely.

    Simply omit the egg white from the recipe. The drink will have a thinner consistency, but it will still be delicious.
