"If it's not made from scratch, it ain't a Whiskey Sour. For a cleaner, classier looking drink, strain the lemon juice to remove seeds and pulp." — JEESH999

1 fluid ounce
2 fluid ounces
fresh lemon juice
5 fluid ounces
maraschino cherries for garnish
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.
Explosion of taste. I made it with Makers Mark and the lemon juice trumped the whiskey. If you like lemon juice you'll probably like this drink.
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. Cheers.
I used some lime simple syrup I had leftover from another recipe. My husband, who's a big whiskey drinker, loved it.
Been drinking sours for betterthan30 years...Great receipe
Nice taste, but very strong. Cut it with some Sprite and it was perfect!
A nice strong drink. One of the better sours I've had. I decided to use Bushmills given the volume of alcohol vs. the mixers. It's great tasting and very smooth. PS. Ix-nay on the Martini Glass-ay. Go for the tumbler w/ ice.
Yeow! These are strong. Mama likes.
