• 4 parts whisky
• 3 parts lemon juice
• 1 part sugar syrup
• sparkling water (soda water)
tumbler (old-fashioned glass)
Put whisky, lemon juice and sugar syrup along with several ice cubes
in a shaker and shake well. Then strain into a tumbler (old-fashioned glass) and garnish with a lemon slice.
If possible use fresh squeezed lemon juice - the essential ingredient in the Whisky Sour! There´s
at least 1 oz. (= 3 cl) of juice in every lemon.
According to the original recipe (which is the one on this page) sours are served without
ice cubes in the glass.
Nevertheless more and more bars will
serve you the sour in a glass filled with ice cubes.
