Cocktails are a funny thing. Like fashion and music, cocktails go through fads. It seems like every few months we hear about the “hottest” new cocktail, give it a try, hate it (most of the time), and never hear about it again. However, there are those few cocktails that are in it for the long-haul – in other words, they never go out of style. Our featured Whiskey Wednesday this week is exactly that – the Whiskey Sour.
The Whiskey Sour has remained popular for so long because of its simplicity. It’s pretty much as simple as it can get and still be called a cocktail. This is good news for you because it also means that it’s extremely simple to make! (And you probably already have the ingredients lying around the house). So break up the week and start mixing up a classic Whiskey Sour.
2 oz. Lost Republic Rye Whiskey
⅔ oz. Lemon Juice
1 tsp. superfine sugar
Shake the bourbon and sugar well with cracked ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and drink!
