Bourbon Sour

Ingredients

There’s a simple structure behind all sours, a family of citrus-based cocktails. Bourbon sour is really an old school cocktail, and it’s definitely not for everybody. Typically, the cocktail is served using whiskey (hence the common “Whiskey Sour”) however more and more mixologists are opting for a smooth bourbon to complement the sourness of the tart lemon.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 3/4 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3/4 oz Simple Syrup
  • Garnish: Maraschino cherry and orange wheel (optional)

PREPARATION

Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, and simple sugar in a shaker half-filled with ice and shake well. Strain into a glass over ice. Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry.
