Much like the Old Fashioned, or the Manhattan, the Whiskey Sour is an enduring, and a classic Bourbon whiskey cocktail that dates back over a century and a half. With none of its appeal fading away even today, it is, without a doubt, a Bourbon cocktail that could be your new favourite drink.
Earliest mentions of the Whiskey Sour stretch back as far as 1870, and the International Bartenders Association has rewarded the Whiskey Sour with a place in their list of ‘Unforgettable Cocktails’.
Without any intricate preparation, astronomically priced ingredients and ready to be served in a matter of minutes, the Whiskey Sour cocktail recipe is for you no matter your experience behind, or in front of the bar.
For the base spirit, the Rabbit Hole Bourbon whiskey is the perfect choice for this whiskey cocktail. With zero Rye content, and Corn, malted Wheat, Honey malted Barley, and malted Barley, it is a smooth, richly flavoured drink that has the potential to turn an average Whiskey Sour into something truly divine!
Add the Rabbit Hole Bourbon whiskey, Lime juice and Sugar syrup into cocktail shaker. Add lots of ice to the container and shake well for a few seconds to produce a chilled, frothy mix.
Take an Old Fashioned glass filled with a large ice cube, and strain the mixture into the glass.
Garnish with an Orange slice, and a Maraschino Cherry. Enjoy the classic Whiskey Sour cocktail.
You’ve watched long leaves unfurl and elegantly swirl in a steaming cup of golden fluid. You’ve taken a long sip, and marvelled at the heady aroma of a first flush. Dainty patterns of blue flowers on smooth white porcelain, you’ve lovingly laid your tea-set for a lazy evening soiree. But have you ever wondered about the first time a cup of tea brewed?
Whoever said Scotch is a difficult ingredient to mix in a cocktail may not have tasted the Blood and Sand before. Granted that Scotch by itself has distinctive, robust flavours that make for great conversations and parties. But a sip of this spiked, sweet, and citrusy liquid may pump up your spirits like nothing else.
