Whiskey Sour

If using sugar rather than syrup, muddle with the lemon juice until dissolved. Shake all of the ingredients with ice and strain into a lowball glass with fresh cubed ice. Garnish with an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

Many sour recipes call for egg whites, however I have never enjoyed egg whites in cocktails.

Mark Twain

Replace the bourbon with blended Scotch whisky and include the Angostura bitters.
