Whiskey Sour

This classic cocktail is best made with bourbon, though any whiskey will do in a pinch. For a nuanced take, try using Meyer lemons, a thin-skinned lemon-orange hybrid that adds a sweet herbal note that really brings out the flavors of a good bourbon.

Add all the ingredients plus ice to a shaker. Give it a few good shakes (you don’t want to water it down too much), and pour into a short glass over ice.
