Whiskey Sour Cocktail Recipe

It’s a classic. This cocktail recipe retains the original proportions of spirit, sweet and sour ingredients to 8:4:3 ratio and uses the traditional garnishes. Even though it’s a sour drink, many find this original drink to be sweeter than a sour one. If you are one of them, then change the spirit:sweet:sour ingredients ratio to 8:2:4
