Crooner Has It: The Pre-show Whiskey Sour

I'm back with the monthly installment of Crooner Has It's Pre-show cocktail. If you're new here, you can head over to my youtube channel and catch up on all my previous episodes there.

This month, I'm making the classic Whiskey Sour. This well-known recipe dates back to the mid-1800s, but people were likely drinking it long before the recipe was formally printed. We're talking sailors on boats battling scurvy with lemons and bourbon.

Today, there are many modern variations of the classic whiskey sour, and celebrities like Taylor Swift, Johnny Depp, and Aziz Ansari have all been said to enjoy this bartending staple.

I'm following a recipe found in one of my old cocktail books. I put what you need below as well as that recipe. So please, have a drink with me.
