This whiskey sour is rapidly becoming one of my go-to cocktails this summer! The fresh citrus and foamy egg white make for the most refreshing summer sips.

My husband is a big bourbon guy and we always have at least half a dozen different kinds in the house. I am not the biggest fan of drinking it straight, but a good bourbon or rye cocktail is definitely a favorite of mine! I have always like Manhattans and Old Fashioneds around the fire or for fancy winter nights, but this summer I was craving a fresh bourbon recipe and this whiskey sour is definitely that!
TIP: The addition of the egg white lightens the cocktail and makes it a bit more creamy. Plus I'm a sucker for that photogenic foam on top :) The egg white is totally optional and the drink still tastes great without it!
