Easy Homemade Whiskey Sour


I'm not a fan of store-bought sour mix, so I came up with my own version.

Prep Time:
5 mins
Total Time:
5 mins
1 drink


  • 2 fluid ounces simple syrup

  • 1 fluid ounce whiskey

  • 1 fluid ounce fresh lemon juice

  • ¼ cup crushed ice cubes

  • 1 maraschino cherry


  1. Stir simple syrup, whiskey, and lemon juice together in a glass. Stir in ice. Garnish with cherry.

Cook's Notes:

I like my whiskey sour to have a little extra dash of lemon and whiskey. My husband likes to add a little extra dash of the simple syrup. So you can adjust this easily to suit your taste.

To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water and 2/3 cup white sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool. Store in the refrigerator.
