The Timeless Classic

Bourbon Sour

Bold, with fresh orange juice. High-rye bourbon bottled at 45% abv in the top chamber is combined with a small-batch bitters. This brings a layered, full-flavored depth along with the fresh lemon and orange juices. The orange juice helps bring down the acidity, which is normally reduced through egg whites, but it also reminds you of a refreshing version of the Old Fashioned.

MIXOLOGIST

Jason Yu

"In the beginning, like a lot of bartenders early into the field of recipe writing, I tried to fit as many obscure ingredients I could fit into a drink recipe to make that menu item seem more impressive, even though a lot of the time, it was just OK. I’ve obviously graduated from that and tailored my approach to more approachable, simpler recipes. These days it’s fewer ingredients. Fewer, but higher quality, more refined ingredients." - Jason Yu

The Story Behind It

Maintaining Heritage

Starting off as a popular sea faring drink, the Whiskey Sour was finally brought ashore by sailors, where it gained enough popularity to be included in Thomas’ guide to drinks. The classic recipe for a Whiskey Sour has remained simple: with liquor, lemon, and simple syrup, the drink needs only three ingredients to be delicious.
