Whiskey Sour

A classic whiskey drink for the 'nostalgic' sipper:

Combine in a shaker (w/o ice*):

2 ounces bourbon (or try it with Irish Whiskey)

3/4 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice

3/4 ounce simple syrup

one egg white

Shake ingredients to emulsify, then add ice and shake a second time to chill; strain into a rocks glass over a couple cubes of ice; garnish with a maraschino cherry and orange (or lemon) slice.

*shaking first without, then with ice, helps to "emulsify" the drink, which gives the sour its characteristic layer of foam when poured.
