Whisky Sour

As true whisky-lovers know, whisky is not just a comforting, curative, toddy for a cold Autumn day. The classic Whisky Sour makes the perfect antidote to hot summer days; a simple drink to whip up it can be easily to make at home and is a vessel for invention. As our American friends enjoy National Whisky Sours day on 25th August we have put together some of the best whisky sours from those in the know. 

New opening TRADE UNION in Wapping keeps things simple and elegant. Their classic whisky sour is made with Jim Beam Double Oak and topped in traditional style with a cherry and a lemon slice.


  1. Add gomme syrup and lemon juice to a Boston shaker.
  2. Add Jim Beam Double Oak and 2 dashes of angostura bitters and egg white.
  3. Shake over ice.
  4. Pour over cubed ice and garnish with a cherry and lemon slice.
Since 1795 (interrupted by Prohibition), seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the company that produces the brand.
