The whiskey sour cocktail is a drink that spiked my interest in whiskey.
It’s massively popular all over the world and it there are a few different variations. Most notably is the addition of egg white.
Some recipes include it, others don’t. Personally, I find the creaminess of the egg white helps smooth the drink out making it much more approachable to non-whiskey drinkers.
