Dan Sabo, Hotel Figueroa | Los Angeles

best whiskey sour recipe

In our recent blind tasting of nearly 20 Whiskey Sours, Dan Sabo’s unorthodox addition of a half-ounce of orange juice to the classic construction earned it the top spot.

  • 2 ounces Rittenhouse Rye 100 Proof
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce rich simple syrup, (2:1, sugar:water)
  • 1 egg white

Garnish: orange half-wheel, brandied cherry

Directions
  1. Add all ingredients to a mixing tin and dry shake.
  2. Add ice and shake again until chilled.
  3. Strain over ice into a rocks glass and garnish with an orange half-wheel and a brandied cherry.
  • Wait, wait: the ingredients list:

    2 ounces Rittenhouse Rye 100 Proof
    1 ounce LEMON juice
    1/2 ounce rich simple syrup, (2:1, sugar:water)
    1 egg white

    is the half-ounce of orange juice in addition? Or was this a typo? I’ll try both and let you know which one I spit out! 😉
