Why This Recipe Works
by Tim Chin
When it comes to food, we're undying champions for simplicity. And when it comes to cocktails, there are few simpler than the Whiskey Sour. Throw together the whiskey of your choice, sugar, and citrus (usually lemon) and you’ve got yourself the beginnings of a tasty, classy drink. We had a bunch of egg whites leftover from developing our Runny Yolk Sauce, so we decided to freeze them in ice cube trays and put them to good use. And while they’re totally optional in the classic Whiskey Sour preparation, we use the whites here to get a nice, pleasing head of foam and creamy texture.
