Whiskey Sour - used High West Bourbon (2 oz), fresh lemon juice (3/4 oz) and simple syrup (3/4) oz. Shook the crap out of it, came out icy cold. Pretty refreshing drink, obviously lemon taste with a decent taste of the bourbon. Definitely will make again, especially since we have a lemon tree in the back yard.
Nice! Have you ever tried it the traditional way shaken with an egg white? IMHO it gives a nice richness to the cocktail.
Not yet, but I plan on doing it. My brother's wife had one made with the egg white and she said it was the best Whiskey Sour that she has had.
Since you liked the Whiskey Sour, try the Prohibition-era Bee's Knees:
2 oz Gin
1 oz Lemon juice
1 oz Honey syrup (1:1 honey:water)
Shake and strain into ice filled Old Fashioned glass.
i'm a huge fan of teh bee's knees
but i dont like the "typical" mix because fresh lemon juice is a bit too overpowering
i do 2.5 gin
1 honey syrup
.5 lemon juice
take lemon peel and rub around rim of glass and light it with a match.
