“Whiskey Sour”

Description from Sarah aka iamhydrogen: Continuation on today's cocktail theme in celebration of summer & the long weekend!

Another classic favorite, but one that's almost never made right at most bars:

2 oz. rye whiskey
1 tsp. superfine sugar or simple syrup
juice of 1/2 a lemon
Angostura or orange bitters (if you have them)

Shake first 3 ingredients over ice. Fill a double old-fashioned glass with new (fresh) ice. Strain drink into prepared glass. Top with a dash of bitters.

This drink can also be served "long," which simply means "topped with soda water." I actually prefer mine that way, as it makes it last longer. For a long whiskey sour, strain your drink into a collins glass filled with ice. Top with club soda, then your dash of bitters.

    Just at the home bar! My husband I just really love cocktails, especially him. He needs a job right now (just finished grad school) and I’m trying to encourage him to get a bartending gig.

    To me, drinking should be enjoyed with the same passion & creativity as cooking. It’s an extension of being a foodie.
