The Whiskey Sour cocktail is a classic drink with a whiskey base. An unusual twist with this drink is the optional dash of egg white, however, can be substituted for pineapple juice if you do not like or cannot have eggs. This drink is served either in a cocktail glass or if served “on the rocks”, then an old fashioned glass should be used instead. Traditionally a whiskey sour is garnished with half a slice of orange and a cocktail cherry.
The Old Fashioned cocktail is made by muddling sugar with bitters, then Bourbon or rye whiskey. The drink is usually finished with a twist of citrus rind and a cocktail cherry. It is traditionally served in an Old Fashioned glass, which is named after this very drink.
