How to Make a Whiskey Sour

by Scott Wagner

The Perfect Cocktail for Summer, Explained

A token recipe from the bar named after Kentucky’s most famous madam, a Whiskey Sour the way Belle’s Cocktail House makes it is sure to impress. Crafted with 1792 Small Batch, or perhaps one of our more exclusive expressions like Full Proof, this version balances out the sour and the sweet in a way that’s better than the rest.

For those hot summer days, a midday cool down or evening starter with a Whiskey Sour is nothing less than perfect.  

The Whiskey Sour - 1792 Bourbon Cocktail


  • 2 oz. 1792 Bourbon 
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice 
  • ½ oz. french lime juice 
  • ½ oz. fresh orange juice 
  • 1 oz. simple syrup (1:1) 
  • A Luxardo cherry and cherry syrup for garnish 


  • Combine ingredients and shake vigorously for ten seconds 
  • Double strain over fresh ice 
  • Garnish with a Luxardo cherry and a light swirl of cherry syrup over the foam

Or, or, or……..try this. Ice, third of glass whiskey, 2 thirds glass squirt soda, splashed with green olives juice and topped with a couple green olives…… superb.
