Comment

Daiquiri

The first cocktail outside of United States, invented in Cuba. Featuring the fresh taste of Rum and lemon juice. Use simple syrup to balance the sour-ness. Simple syrup + lemon juice is also known as sour mix.

2 oz White Rum
+ .75 lime juice
+ .75 simple syrup
+ Shake
Manhattans

A fictional origin with then-away Lady Randolph Churchill adds to the story when you make one. Definitely classic. Tastes strong bourbon first, and then a glimpse of sweetness.

2 oz Bourbon/Rye Whisky
+ .75 Sweet Vermo
+ dash of bitters
+ garnish with cherry
Screwdriver

Fun part: in the how to video, when she says 6oz of orange juice, I start to worry the drink she mixes...

Whisky Sour

The version with fresh lemon juice actually tastes great (wine, sweetness and sour are perfectly mixed). Egg white enhances the texture, together with the garnish, it makes great photos!

2 oz Bourbon/Rye Whisky
+ .75 Fresh Lemon Juice
+ .75 Simple Syrup
+ egg white
+ garnish with cherry/orange
