A refreshing whisky sour cocktail. Simple syrup is shaken with ice, lemon juice and whisky, then served in martini glasses with cocktail cherries. Share at your next dinner party or barbecue.
This may be a personal taste preference thing, but it either needs more simple syrup or less lemon juice...just a little too tart for me. But that's not to say that we didn't empty the glasses! - 21 Feb 2015
pretty stiff drink. not for the faint of heart. Used Makers for whiskey. Needs to be sweetened for true drinkability, so include the cherries and consider a larger ratio of lemon juice to whiskey. - 20 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Dude, that is a whiskey drinkers whiskey sour. For those hardcore whiskey drinkers who are thinking along the lines of "a real whiskey drinker wouldn't add the mix, ice, etc". Fair enough. I like mine neat also but let's be honest: the ice and lemon tang really does go well on a hot afternoon! I gave this recipe a go with my rye whiskey fave, Forty Creek. The 5 oz did seem high for a recipe. It's more than double of any others I surfed up. But you know what? It's superb. I think you'd want to cut 'er down to two or three for those that don't like the booze to take center stage. I'm gonna hang with this one on hot summer days.
