Whiskey sour

One of the first chapters in the book is cocktails, cups and punches. Don’t have many spirits in our house except whiskey so thought would give this a go


Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp sugar
1 measure of whiskey
Cracked ice

Mix together the lemon juice, sugar and whiskey and shake well with the cracked ice. That’s it!

I had assumed this was only meant for one so I doubled this, we had miniatures of whiskey which were 50ml. Not sure if a measure would be considered as 25ml or 35ml, guess it depends where you drink! I don’t have a cocktail shaker so had to use a Tupperware pot with a lid, maybe not best idea as it did leak and the dog was licking floor where I had been shaking it! I didn’t know if you were meant to strain off the ice, I just served with the ice in the glass.

I’m really not a fan of whiskey, but that was actually quite enjoyable for a Friday evening before dinner. Was quite refreshing, really lemony with the heat from the whiskey. I personally think it could do with a touch more sugar, but overall enjoyed it. Couldn’t drink anymore, one was plenty for me!

Would I make this again? Yes, need to use up the whiskey in the cupboard!
