Whiskey Sour Day

Words by Jane Ryan

Whiskey Sour (Difford's recipe)

They have a day for everything in the States and today is National Whiskey Sour Day in America, a wonderful excuse to revisit this classic cocktail and some of its better incarnations.

A classic cocktail that's never been fashionable, and so has never become unfashionable either, the Whiskey Sour is a truly great all-year drink, with body enough for winter, and sourness to make refreshing in summer.

And what else to drink on such an auspicious day? But which whiskey sour? There are so many subtle nuances to this most classic of cocktails. While you decide, perhaps try our Whiskey Sour recipe and then, with a drink in hand, peruse the other options on our Whiskey Sour page, and perhaps also our Sours page.
