Meet the best whiskey sour recipe—it’s full of bourbon and fresh lemon, sweetened with maple syrup and includes a hint of cinnamon (spice is optional). Feel free to multiply the amounts given below by up to four, if you’d like to make a bigger batch in your cocktail shaker all at once.
1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) Bulleit bourbon or your bourbon of choice
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lemon juice
2 to 4 teaspoons maple syrup, to taste (I like 3 teaspoons, which is the equivalent of 1/2 ounce or 1 tablespoon)
Pinch of ground cinnamon, optional
Fill a cocktail shaker or mason jar about two-thirds full with ice. Pour in the bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Securely fasten the lid and shake well.
Pour fresh ice into your cocktail glass and strain the cold whiskey sour mixture into the glass. Enjoy!
