What’s a whiskey sour? The whiskey sour is a classic cocktail consisting of whiskey (usually bourbon), sugar, and lemon or lime juice — fresh is recommended.
“The first published account of a Whisky Sour is from an 1870 newspaper in Wisconsin. Another tale claims an English steward invented it after opening a bar in Peru around the same time, inspired by the abundant limes from a nearby grove”, writes AskMen.
A more traditional recipe of the whiskey sour calls for the addition of egg whites, which is supposed to tame the sour note. Adding soda to any sour will give you a Collins.
