Whiskey Sour

A whiskey cocktail with an optional egg white.


  • Bourbon 2 oz
  • Fresh lemon juice ¾ oz
  • Simple syrup ½ oz
  • Egg white (optional) ½ oz
  • Angostura bitters 2 dashes

Try this one with and without an egg white. For some, consuming an egg white might not be an option.

Put everything except the bitters into a shaker, toss in some ice, and shake this vigorously. Strain the contents into a couple cocktail glass.

The cocktail will be very frothy if you included the egg white in the shaker.

Add those 2 dashes of Angostura bitters as garnish on top of the froth.

Whiskey Sour

Bourbon is the recommended whiskey, but you're welcome to try Scotch, Canadian whiskey, or Irish whiskey.
