Recipe: Chef John's Whiskey Sour

Day drinking is the best drinking, and if that day happens to be a very sunny, hot day, theres no better cocktail to enjoy than a classic whiskey sour. Im very excited to show you my favorite formula for this incredibly refreshing, super simple, absolutely delicious drink. Garnish with a slice of blood orange and a Luxardo cherry.

Chef John's Whiskey Sour Ingredients

  • cup white sugar

  • cup water

  • 2 fluid ounces 100-proof bourbon whiskey

  • 1 fluid ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 4 drops orange bitters, or more to taste

  • 1 large egg white

  • ice cubes as needed

How to Make Chef John's Whiskey Sour

  1. Bring sugar and water to a simmer in a small pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved. Turn off heat, transfer to a bowl, and let syrup cool completely before using, 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. Pour 3/4 fluid ounce simple syrup, bourbon, lemon juice, bitters, and egg white into a large cocktail shaker. Cover with a smaller cocktail shaker, or top, and give the cocktail a "dry shake" without ice, about 30 seconds.

  3. Add 3 ice cubes to the mixture, cover, and shake vigorously until the shaker is very cold and the outside is frosty, about 45 seconds. Uncover and strain into a rocks glass containing one large ice cube. Serve immediately.

Chef John's Whiskey Sour Reviews

  • As always, Chef John hits it out of the park. I feel somewhat responsible for this recipe since I pestered and pestered for it so you are all welcome :). Seriously, thank you Chef. Made this the second you posted it. I like it with the egg white, my Michelle does not.

  • Great recipe, really enjoyed. I found 3/4 oz syrup was a bit too sweet for my taste, so I just use 1/2 ounce syrup.

  • Beautiful and Delicious. Perfect quarantine drink

  • Wow, thats delicious This will be my Summer of 2020 drink

  • Excellent proportions. More egg white than I usually use, but you cant argue with velvety mouth feel. I prefer to use an immersion blender rather than a dry shake. I get a frothier result and none of the "leakage" I sometimes get with a dry shake.
