The Whiskey Sour
One of the great cocktails, excellent to make in batches
- 8 ounces bourbon
- 4 ounces citrus juice, or more as needed lime, lemon, or a mix,
- 4 ounces simple syrup, or more as needed sugar dissolved in an equal amount of water
- 2 egg whites
Combine all the ingredients in a large measuring glass and blend with a hand blender. (This can be done in a standing mixer as well.)
Taste! Think. If it's too sour, add simple syrup. If too sweet add citrus. If you would like it stronger add 2 to 4 more ounces bourbon. Up to you!
Fill the measuring glass with ice and stir to chill.
Strain into four glasses over ice.
