The Perfect Whiskey Sour with Jack Daniels


Let's face it, the summer is pretty much over in Northern Ireland. As the evenings get darker and cooler, thoughts turn to comfort and warmth and that often means a little night cap.

Jack Daniels sent me the recipe for the perfect whiskey sour and I thought I would give it a little try. When I drink spirits, its usually vodka or gin; cool, refreshing drinks. However, I've often said I would like to find warm, cosy drink and I think I've found it!

Here's the ingredients
  • 50ml Jack Daniels No.7 Sour
  • 25ml Lemon Juice
  • 15ml Sugar Syrup (1:1)
  • 2-3 dash Angostura Bitters

The essentials

Start with 50ml of Jack Daniels No.7 Sour...that's 2 shots to you and me.

 Add 25ml of lemon juice (roughly the juice of 1 lemon) , 15ml sugar syrup and few dashes of Angostura bitters to your shaker

And shake!

The Jack Daniels Sour is served in a traditional short glass, with cubed ice (or spherical if you're pretentious like me). The glass is garnished with a lemon twist; just run a vegetable peeler over the lemon you juiced for the blend.


Classic whiskey cocktails like the sour and the Old Fashioned are having something of a renaissance lately, I think Mad Men is most likely the inspiration. So channel your inner Don Draper, mix yourself a Jack Daniels Sour and welcome in autumn!

*Jack Daniels kindly provided me with a voucher for the supplies used.
