Happy Monday, and happy National Whiskey Sour Day!

Clearly our heads are still sort of in weekend mode… but we couldn’t resist doing a feature on this classic cocktail for it’s birthday! If you like your drinks savory and zingy, this is a great one to try.

The recipe we’ve decided to feature for you {top left image} has a slight spin on the traditional sour, with an egg-white additive. If you’ve never had egg in your drink before, you really should! You don’t taste a thing (I swear!), and it adds a frothy smoothness that delights the palette.

If this style of sour isn’t for you, then check out the other ones above! {clockwise from top right: 1 // 2 // 3}

So when you get home this evening, why not go all out? Get your shaker, turn on Mad Men, and beat those Monday blues.

Without further ado, the Whiskey Sour:

Ingredients: (serves 1)

// 2 ounces whiskey (bourbon or rye)

// 3/4 ounces simple syrup (1:1 ratio sugar:water)

// 3/4 ounces lemon juice

// 1 egg white

To Make:

Combine all ingredients in your shaker and mix very well (strongly, for at least 10 seconds). Add ice to your shaker, and shake normally. Strain over ice, and drink up!
