The 12 Days of Cocktails #11 - Whiskey Sour

We’re in the homestretch now, so here’s an oldie but goodie. Unless you frequent a classy gin joint, the last one of these you had was probably from a mix. I can assure you the from-scratch raw egg preparation will erase any lingering fears you have of this concoction. In my opinion, it is way better than an old fashioned if done right.
