Folks have been sippin' on Whiskey Sours for years. Legend has it this fabulous cocktail first appeared in print back in 1862. This drink was actually the most popular cocktail in the United States for over a century! Not too tart, not too sweet, this simple-to-make drink is the perfect pick-me-up after a hard day at work - or just because. Traditionally made with egg whites, whiskey sours are typically made with bourbon rye or blended whiskey, lemon juice and sugar.
