The perfect Whisky Sour recipe. It is a hard thing to come by, you know? Sure, there are plenty of recipes to make a pretty lame whisky sour, but none of them show you how to make a top shelf, restaurant quality, and ultra manly whisky sour.

As a fan of the drink, I myself have perfected the Whisky Sour Recipe and mix them up all the time in my own home.

Whisky Sour Recipe Essentials

For this recipe you will need:

  1. 1 Cup of Sugar
  2. 1 Cup of Water
  3. 1 Cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  4. ½ Cup Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  5. 2 Cherries
  6. 1 Lemon Wedge (Peel it off that lemon you’re squeezing)
  7. 3 oz. Whisky of your choice (just not a shitty one)
  8. 1 High Ball Glass
  9. 1 Old Fashioned Glass

Putting the Whisky Sour Recipe together

Step One

Mix the first four ingredients together thoroughly. You have to make sure you really mix it well because you don’t want any granulated sugar hanging around. The lemon and lime juices up the acidity and help dissolve the sugar, but you still want to make sure that it is all mixed together really well.

When you run your spoon along the bottom of the pitcher, or wherever you’re mixing it, do you hear the tell-tale crunching of sugar against the spoon? Keep mixing that shit together until you don’t hear that anymore. Mix it super well.

You should be done by now.

Step Two

Put the cherry in the bottom of the high ball glass and then fill the glass with ice. Once you’ve done that, put your lemon wedge on top of the ice.

Step Three

Pour the 3 oz. of whisky into your Old Fashioned glass first. Do not pour into the highball glass! Pouring the whisky into the highball glass at this stage will ruin the drink! Trust me, there is a method to the madness.

Step Four

Pour the glass full of your sour mix and dump the excess sour mix out. It doesn’t keep too long and you really don’t want that shit around your house. I would have made the recipe smaller so it made the correct amount, but I really didn’t feel like figuring out how many ounces 0.125 cups was (if you know, email me and I’ll fix this).

Step Five

Next, take your high ball glass with the cherry, lemon wedge, ice and sour mix, and throw it in your trashcan.

Your finished product should look like this:

The Perfect Whisky Sour!
