All too often made with cheap sweet-and-sour mix, Sours—"whiskey":http://www.chow.com/recipes/10314, bourbon, and the rest—get a bad rap. But when a Bourbon Sour is made properly, and with the addition of an egg white, it’s easy to see why the drink’s such a classic.

This recipe was featured as part of our Kentucky Derby Day menu.


  1. 1Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add bourbon, egg white, lemon juice, and rich simple syrup and shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds. Pour into a cocktail glass, top with bitters, and serve.
