Friday Cocktail Hour-Classic Whiskey Sour
This summery cocktail is bright and lemony and so simple to prepare. Keep that cocktail shaker out for the weekend. You’ll want to make a big batch of these.
Use any whiskey, save your good bourbon for another time, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and frothy egg whites. Top it off with a cherry. I add a dash of bitters or grenadine for color. Cheers!
