A Whisky Sour is a cocktail containing whisky, lemon juice, sugar syrup and a dash of egg white. It is traditionally garnished with a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry.
The oldest historical mention of a whisky sour was published in the Wisconsin newspaper, Waukesha Plain Dealer, in 1870. Still popular today, the Whisky Sour is a cocktail that has stood the test of time.
One of the more lesser known classic cocktails, the Paradise is sweet and fruity and makes a great pre-dinner summer drink.
This cocktail was created by the late bartender and mixologist Dick Bradsell. Dick was highly regarded in his field and managed to turn cocktail making into an art. His ability to blend, balance and pair tastes to create the perfect drink was remarkable.
