Ginger Lime Whiskey Sour

Ginger Lime Whiskey Sour -
Emily Hlavac Green

A whiskey sour is definitely one of our favorite and easiest cocktails to make. Ginger adds a spicy kick to the traditional whiskey sour. We also replaced the lemon juice with lime for a citrus upgrade that really makes this stand out from the rest. The egg white is completely optional, but it adds a nice frothiness and is very traditional on a whiskey sour!
