  • 25 g of cherries pitted and halved
  • 2 oz Whiskey
  • ½ oz of fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz of fresh orange juice
  • ¾ oz simple syrup
  • ½ an egg white
  • 1 handful of ice cubes
  • 2-3 sprigs of mint
  • 1 slither of orange zest for garnish
  • 1 slither of lemon zest for garnish


  1. Pour water inside the moulds of a muffin tin at least 3 quarters of the way up. Then freeze until completely solid.

  2. Put a glass in the freezer to chill for 5 minutes.
  3. Put your pitted and halved cherries in a glass, then muddle until half broken down (don't completely mash the cherries).

  4. Take the glass out of the freezer and add one of your giant ice cube.

  5. Put your Whiskey, lemon juice, orange juice, simple syrup and egg white in a shaker, then shake without ice for a few times.

  6. Add the ice cubes, then shake again for a good 10-15 seconds.
  7. Strain into your chilled glass, garnish with your cherries, mint, orange and lemon zest.

Recipe Notes

  • A dash of bitters works beautifully in a Whiskey Sour.
  • You may use lime instead of lemon if you want.
  • Make sure you garnsih the drink nicely or else it will just look dull. 
  • Shake the drink for a few seconds without ice before shaking with ice, just to ensure the egg white gets fully incoorerated in the cocktail. 
  • Make big ice cubes, small ice cubes or crushed ice will dilute too easily, then your cocktail will go watery. 
  • Bourbon, rye Whiskey and Scotch seem to be the 3 most popular Whiskeys for making Whiskey Sour. 
  • If you're a vegan, use aquafaba instead of egg white. I use 1/2 an ounce of aquafaba per cocktail.
