Whiskey Sour

Updated: Jun 24, 2020


  • 2 oz whiskey (I usually use bourbon for these)

  • 1 oz lemon juice, fresh squeezed (the fresh is important! Always use fresh juice citrus when making a cocktail)

  • 1 oz simple syrup (See the note below)

Notes before you begin

  • We’ll be using simple syrup in this recipe. To make simple syrup, combine equal amounts sugar and water in a saucepan and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool use to sweeten any cocktail or iced drink!


  1. Combine whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice(or mason jar if you don’t have one). Shake until the outside is cold (about 10–15 seconds).

  2. Fill the glass with ice (I usually use a rocks glass or something I would drink whiskey out of) and pour in the drink through a fine mesh strainer. It’s traditionally to garnish with a cherry but hard herbs like rosemary work as well. Enjoy!
