All components should be mixed well otherwise it tastes grainy.

What if you used sour mix instead of juice of lemons etc.

1 measure fresh lemon juice
3 measure tonic.

Sweet and sour

One of my top 5 favorite drinks. Sweet and sour mix can be replaced for the juice of lemons (~1oz. or less of sweet and sour.) The sugar is a nice touch, but I prefer to go without.

Sour mix is good but the recipe above is best for your more quiet sophisticated establishments.
Try it with Jagermeister

posted by Spanked Every Morning @ 09:14PM, 5/04/07

Substitute half of the souring juice (lemon, lime) with Jagermeister, two teaspoons of vanilla extract, one drop of chiptle tabasco, and 2.5 teaspoons of powdered sugar. Please please please shake very well.

Dbl. Whiskey Sours are an amazing thing, they are delicious and they happen to be my favorite drink, except make sure you drink a lot of water after drinking dries the tongue out mighty fierce, dont want to be smooching and have a rough tongue.
Do the Right Way

Sazerac Rye, 90 proof, in the beautiful bottle (right out of your favorite Western, the one the grizzled bartender sets in front of John Wayne) makes the quintessential whiskey sour. Damn good recipe. (Spanked every morning, by the way, shoiuld be spanked all day for that emetic he posted ... Jagermeister? tabasco? ... vanilla extract ... jeez I don't know what it is but it ain't a sour).
I LOVE THIS DRINK.....

I drank a ton of these on a cruise ship. So darn tasty!

Sometimes I had a cocktail onion instead of a cherry.

Whiskey Sour was really good. I was not sure what a whiskey sour glass is to use.
Best Blended

posted by boss @ 11:29PM, 12/16/07

Get a blender... add 1 can lemonade concentrate and then refill the concentrate can about 3/4 full of whiskey (more or less depending on how strong you want it) and add. then refill the can about half full with 7up and add that to the blender. finally, crack a raw egg into the blender and mix it up. serve over rocks or blend with ice for a frozen whiskey sour. the egg makes it nice and frothy, delicious!
