This is a huge episode. Not only do the Gentlemen of Elegant Leisure do two fabulous drinks, but they also do a special remote recording from the White Rock Whisky Society’s Summer Soiree! Listen in to hear the fun and check out what the White Rock Whisky Society gets up to here, or watch the video below.
The drinks this time around are identical but different. It’s two different versions of a Whiskey Sour. One with Scotch whisky (in this case Grant’s) and one with rye (we chose Sazerac to be interesting). This is a simple drink that is greater than the sum of it’s parts. Try it immediately.
2 ounces Whisky
1 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup (1:1 sugar and water)
maybe a splash of soda water . . .?
garnish with an orange peel twist
Build this drink in a glass over ice. Stir until chilled.
The first drink we did with scotch, and it was great. The second drink we did with the Sazerac and it was even better. Try it at home with bourbon, or Irish Whiskey, or a different rye.
No matter how you make it, this is still a simple but wonderful drink.
