Confessions of a Mixologist: Whiskey Sour
They don't get much more classic than the whiskey sour. It has been around for more than a century, a sort of comfort cocktail that's as easy to drink as it is to make. Start with whiskey - it doesn't have to be great whiskey but it can't hurt - and add the cut of citrus and the sweetness of sugar. It'll bring you back to life after a weekend with the family or an afternoon running errands.
