Whisky sour

Jerry Thomas organized cocktails in his bar manual 7 years before Dimitri Mendeleev organized the chemical elements in the first periodic table. So since 1862 the idea of dividing cocktails into groups like sours, flips, fizzes and punches has existed.

The whisky sour is the cocktail equivalent of carbon.
  • 5 cl whisky or bourbon
  • 2,5 cl fresh lemon jucice
  • 1 cl simple syrup or maple syrup
Shake everything with ice and strain into a low ball glass or a whisky tumbler. Garnish with a lemon twist.
