Cocktail of the Week: The Whiskey Sour
Forrest Miller – Muze Staff Writer
Welcome to the weekend, friends. You have made it through the grueling workweek and you are ready to wet your whistle with a well-deserved night of inebriation and debauchery. The news isn’t all good, however– before we can jam out to a slurred rendition of a Katy Perry karaoke smash hit we need to address the most important issue of the night: what to drink? We here at Muze Magazine understand your pain and we are here to help. Every week we will have an article with a featured cocktail for you to try. Whether you are going out or staying in, it’s important to be prepared. There are a lot of options out there and a good party go-er should know what to order and order it with confidence.
This week we are going to start out with a classic: the Whiskey Sour. The whiskey sour is a good choice for those who aren’t at the level of alcoholism that involves drinking straight from the bottle, but still want something not too frilly. For other great cocktail ideas, check out Muze Magazine’s “5 Tasty Classic Cocktails- For Guys!”
- 1 1/2 oz. whiskey (or bourbon)
- 1 oz. lemon juice
- 2 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water)
- Crushed ice
- 1 maraschino cherry
- Lemon wedge (optional).
Blend the lemon juice and simple syrup to create the sour mix. Make sure the sugar is completely dissolved. Pour the sour mix over the whiskey in a lowball glass with ice. Stir, garnish with cherry and lemon wedge, and serve.
