Boston Sour Instructions
The Boston Sour is a classic cocktail that originated in the city of Boston, hence the name. It is a sour cocktail, meaning it has a tangy and acidic taste that comes from the addition of fresh lemon juice. This drink is perfect for those who enjoy a balanced and refreshing beverage.
To make a Boston Sour, you will need a few simple ingredients including bourbon or whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and an egg white. The egg white gives the cocktail a creamy and frothy texture, making it extra special.
To start, combine 2 ounces of bourbon or whiskey, 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice, 0.75 ounces of simple syrup, and 1 egg white in a cocktail shaker. Shake the mixture vigorously for about 30 seconds to ensure that all the ingredients are well combined.
Next, fill the cocktail shaker with ice and shake again for another 30 seconds. This will help to chill the drink and create a nice froth from the egg white. Once shaken, strain the mixture into a glass filled with ice.
Traditionally, the Boston Sour is served in a rocks glass, but feel free to use any glassware you have available. Garnish the cocktail with a lemon wheel or a cherry to add a pop of color and a touch of sweetness.
The Boston Sour is a versatile cocktail that can be enjoyed year-round. It is a great choice for those who like a whiskey-based drink with a citrusy twist. Whether you are hosting a party or simply enjoying a quiet evening at home, the Boston Sour is sure to impress.
Best served in a Whiskey Sour Glass.
