Whisky Sour Cocktail Recipes

Classic Whisky Sour
This is the classic sour recipe made with Singleton of Glen Ord. The rich and fruity flavours of the Singleton of Glen Ord pair amazingly well with the fresh citrus and give a great body and backbone to the cocktail while standing up to the sharp citrus. The egg white gives it that full and creamy mouth feel that you want in a whisky sour and then the aromatic bitters lift the nose of the drink. Fresh cherry and Singleton are a match made in heaven and a perfect finish on this beautiful Singleton Sour.
 
Ingredients:
60 ml Singleton of Glen Ord 12-year-old Highland Single Malt Whisky
30ml Freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
15ml Sugar Syrup
½ an Egg White 
 
Method: Shake all ingredients hard with cubed ice and serve into a rocks glass and then top with cubed ice
Garnish: A few drops of aromatic bitters and a cherry
 
 
Edinburgh Sour
This is a fantastic summer variation on the Whisky sour. Light, citrusy and grassy notes from the Glenkinchie are married with light and fruity motes in the Bianco vermouth and the peach syrup. Citrus and the orange bitters gives it the necessary sour notes while the egg is there to give the texture needed in the drink. Served in a wine glass, this is a more refined and elegant twist on the classic cocktail.
 
 
Ingredients:
50ml Glenkinchie 12-year-old Lowland Single Malt Whisky
20 ml Bianco Vermouth
25ml Fresh Lime Juice
15ml Peach Syrup
½ an Egg White
 
Method: Shake all ingredients hard with cubed ice and strain into a wine glass with cubed ice.
Garnish: 3 dashes of orange bitters and a wedge of fresh peach
 
 
Smoky Sour
This is one for the smoky whisky drinkers. The Talisker 10YO from the Isle of Skye is supported by sweet and rich notes from the port wine and from honey syrup. The mixed citrus notes from lemon and grapefruit provide balance and acidity while the salt brings all the rich flavours together with a nod to Talisker’s maritime traditions.
 
 
Ingredients: 
50 ml Talisker 10-year-old Single Malt Whisky
15ml Port Wine 
15ml Honey 
20ml Lemon Juice
10 ml Fresh Grapefruit Juice
½ an Egg White
Pinch of Sea Salt
 
Method: Shake all ingredients hard and strain into a chilled coupette and serve without ice. 
 
Note: The classic recipe calls for egg white as it provides texture to the drink but does not alter any flavour aspects. For those who do not consume egg, all drinks can easily be made without. Other options are adding a splash of pineapple juice or chick pea puree to add the texture.
