Whisky Sour Recipes

Whisky Sour Recipes shared by Beam Suntory, a premium spirits company to celebrate National Whisky Sour Day with innovative Whisky-based cocktails using Toki and Jim Beam.

Officially dating back to the 1860s, the history of Whiskey Sour goes back in time. It was a drink that sailors in the British Navy had been drinking on long sea journeys. One because the water was scarce and two – in order to combat diseases lemon or limey as it was called was considered good and hence was used in the Whisky Sour Recipes.
