IT'S NATIONAL WHISKEY SOUR DAY

HAPPY NATIONAL WHISKEY SOUR DAY

August 25th is National Whiskey Sour Day so today we celebrate one of the oldest cocktails on the happy hour menu.  Disguised in my recipe card as a martini for Dad, the Whiskey Sour was more likely a favorite of your grandfather or great grandfather.  Mentioned in famed mixologist Jerry Thomas' 1862 Bartender's Guide, the Whiskey Sour has a long history as a classic alcoholic beverage. This venerable cocktail is a member of the Sour family of mixed drinks which consist of a combination of a base liquor, lemon or lime juice and sugar with an optional addition of egg white.
