Cocktail Hour: Bourbon Sour

Bourbon Sour

Every cocktail afficianto knows how they like their Whiskey Sour, and today we continue our on-going cocktail hour series, demonstrating how to make one our preferred way, with Bourbon instead of Whiskey and egg white. It’s probably one of our go-to recipes to impress a Bourbon lover, because it’s super classic, pretty darn special, and also easy to make if you have the tools.

Try making a round of these at your next dinner party!

2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon
1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
¾ oz Simple Syrup
1 Large Egg White
Angostura Bitters


Combine bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup, and one egg, and dry shake. Fill cocktail shaker with large chunk ice and shake for at least thirty seconds. Strain through a fine strainer into a chilled coupe. Dot top with three generous drops of Angostura’s aromatic bitters and swirl with a tooth pick.
