A former ship steward, Elliot Staub, “invented” a drink — the whiskey sour — in a bar in Iquique (then part of Peru).The original Whiskey Sour is a mixed drink containing whiskey, lemon juice, sugar, and optionally, a dash of egg white.
1.5 oz Whiskey
1 egg white
.75 oz fresh lemon juice
.75 oz simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
Pour the egg white into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and Shake briefly to aerate the whites. Add the Whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. If you like garnish with a cherry and/or lemon wedge.
(1 Serving ) Enjoy!
