    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    For what it's worth, my whiskey sour reicpe is as follows;

    1 1/2 oz bourbon
    1 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
    3/4 oz simple syrup*

    Shake with ice and strain into a coktail glass, stright up or over ice.

    *I make my own simple syrup, using 2 parts water, 1 part sugar. I find the syrup makes it easier to get a smooth, fully mixed drink.

    The result is a nice, tangy sour, with just the right amount of sweentess for my own taste.

    Nice recipe. The Sour impresses by its simplicity and quality - if well made. It can be made, too, with almost any spirit (except a peaty scotch, maybe).

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    I sure like the idea of these recipes over that pre-made stuff in the bottle, I may even have to try one for myself

    Thanks,
    Bill

    wife mostly drink's gin, but I have to give her credit for knowing her gins, she's currently got 7 or 8 different bottles open. I only have 6 bourbons open at the moment.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    My wife prefers scotch to bourbon. She says the taste of bourbon is too "sweet" for her liking. She will drink bourbon if scotch isn't available and she liked the pitcher of whiskey sours that our elderly neighbor used to bring over on halloween.

    I asked our neighbor for the recipe and she graciously shared it.

    1 can concentrated lemonade (dump into pitcher)
    1 can bourbon (use the lemonade container)
    1 can beer

    Stir, chill, and serve. On the rocks if you like.

    I don't care for beer, but it actually turned out to be a very tasty recipe.

    I see a lot of posters who have a spouse that enjoy a margarita. I have an excellent top shelf margarita recipe if anyone is interested, but this might not be the appropriate thread.

    I wish. My wife drinks bloody maries and wine. She's a cheap date, though, which is nice. Heh.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    I'm not a cocktail man, but I recently had a Whiskey Sour that I loved - sounds weird, but it worked for me. It was made by a French bartender in Scotland.

    1.5 oz whiskey with one sugar cube crushed into the whiskey
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    one egg white (no yolk, and no joke)

    Put in a chilled metal shaker and add two ice cubes and shake the s--- out of it. When you feel the egg white has whipped, pour through a strainer.

    Caveat - I'm an egg nog lover.

    My wife doesnt care for bourbon - at least not straight. Maybe in a mixed drink. But more likely to drink fuzzy navel, screwdrivers, etc

    Interesting. Sounds similar to a "Pisco Sour". Substitute Pisco for the bourbon, lime juice for the lemon.

    Something I was introduced to while in Peru (1988).

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    I'd say that's a standard recipe for a Whiskey Sour, the egg white is optional in such (and many other) cocktails. It will give some texture and a little taste perhaps.

    A Sour really is one of the great cocktails.
