I want to show you how to make a whiskey sour. This is a very easy process that will render you a delicious and refreshing cocktail.
You will be needing some simple syrup for this recipe. All you have to do for this is dissolve equal parts of sugar with water in a pot. Stir until dissolved and remove from heat. Cool dowm completely.
This recipe can be made with bourbon as well. I use 2 oz. of whiskey but you can use less if you prefer. For me this is perfect.
Try and use freshly squeezed lemon juice for this as the one that comes in palctic lemons or bottles tends to have a bitter after taste.
Please drink responsibly.
