This whiskey sour with lime is a tasty spin on the classic cocktail! Ginger and lime add a spicy, zingy finish to this easy drink.


  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) bourbon whiskey
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) simple syrup
  • 1 slice fresh ginger root (optional)
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • Garnish: cocktail cherry, lime wedge or peel
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)


  1. Add the fresh ginger slice to the cocktail shaker and muddle to release juices (optional). Add the remaining ingredients to the shaker, add a few handfuls of ice, and shake until very cold.
  2. Strain the drink into a lowball or Old Fashioned glass. Serve with ice, a lime peel and a cocktail cherry.
