    How to make Classic Whiskey Sour

    To prepare classic whiskey sour, combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, strain into an old-fashioned glass, and serve on the rocks. 

    Boston Sour

    The ingredients for Boston sour remain the same as classic whiskey sour. The only addition to the recipe is egg white.

    To prepare Boston sour:

    1. Combine crushed ice and egg whites and shake until frothy.

    Note: Ensure that you don’t shake the living daylights of the ice-and-egg white mixture, as this would cause the shaker to develop pressure and form a foamy head due to the protein in the egg white

    1. Add whiskey, lemon, and simple syrup and shake for a few seconds.
    2. Strain into an old-fashioned glass on the rocks, garnish with a slice of orange or cherries, and serve immediately.


    How to make Sunset Whiskey Sour

    1. Mix whiskey, lemon juice, strawberry syrup and sugar syrup.
    2. Pour into an old-fashioned glass over the rocks and float with red wine.
    3. Garnish with a slice of orange, and serve immediately.

    The Scottish Dream

    This version of whiskey sour incorporates 15 ml cinnamon sugar syrup, a dash or two Black Mission Fig Bitters, 30 ml grapefruit juice, and of course the standards—bourbon whiskey and lemon juice.

    To make cinnamon syrup, combine 1 cup sugar syrup and a cinnamon stick with 1 cup water. Bring to boil, and let cool.

    To make the Scottish Dream cocktail, combine the ingredients in a shaker, strain into an old-

    fashioned glass, garnish with a cherry and serve on the rocks.

    This cocktail is packed with all sorts of the wow! There’s the sour from lemon juice, bitter from fig bitters, spice from the cinnamon, and sweet from the sugar and grapefruit juice!

    How to make Alexis’ Bordeaux Sour

    1. In a thick-bottomed glass, crush lemon juice, maple syrup, and cherries with a muddler and transfer to a cocktail shaker.
    2. Add whiskey, orange bitters, Little Rouge, egg white, and crushed ice and shake vigorously.
    3. Strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice, garnish with a cherry and serve immediately.

    If there’s one thing cocktail lovers hate and consider an eyesore, it’s the sight of neon-red blobs propped at the edge of a highball or soullessly sunken inside an old-fashioned. 

    Even worse is the sight of these squinting red blobs on top of desserts. 

    Yes folks!The fuss is all about the so-called Maraschino cherries, which are sold as a counterfeit of the original (which also goes by the same name) in every other departmental store you come across. 

    This sure does bother cocktail snobs and dessert connoisseurs alike. If you belong to this breed, read on how to make homemade Maraschino cherries. 

    While you may not be able to find authentic Marasca cherries for this recipe, sour cherries, or even sweet ones, work just fine. This recipe calls for: 

    1 cup sugar

    1 cup water

    Choice of spices (vanilla bean, nutmeg, star anise, cinnamon stick, cloves)

    1 cup maraschino liqueur (Luxardo) or top-shelf brandy

    A bunch of cherries

    To prepare Maraschino cherries:

    1. Combine sugar, water, spices in a pan over medium heat, and let simmer. Stir until sugar is dissolved completely.
    2. Removed from heat, add maraschino liqueur cherries and stir until cherries are coated with the preserve.
    3. Transfer to air tight glass jars and refrigerate overnight.
