5 Satisfying Sour Cocktails

There are few drinks more delicious or satisfying to fix than a classic Whiskey Sour. It has the perfect balance of sweet and tart with enough alcohol to make it enjoyable.

Using the same basic Sour recipe —consisting of roughly two parts alcohol to one part sour and one part sweet—you can create a range of cocktails, including the Daiquiri, the Margarita and the Sidecar. (Add some Champagne to the mix and you can get a French 75, too).

So to help get you started, we pulled together five different variations on the Sour that show you just how versatile the formula is. We guarantee you won't be disappointed!
