A: Yes, you can replace the whiskey with non-alcoholic whiskey or skip it altogether and make a lemon sour mocktail.
A: You can use aquafaba, which is the liquid from a can of chickpeas, or omit it entirely, but the cocktail won’t have the same frothy texture.
A: Fresh lemon juice is always best, but if you have to use bottled, make sure it’s 100% lemon juice without any added sugars or preservatives.
A: You can adjust the amount of simple syrup you use to your taste or omit it entirely if you prefer a more tart cocktail.
A: Multiply the recipe by the number of guests you’ll be serving and mix it all up in a large pitcher. Serve in rocks glasses with ice and garnish each glass individually.
If you’re new to making cocktails, here are some tips to make your whiskey sour recipe with Jameson a success:
1. Use fresh ingredients: Fresh lemon juice and simple syrup will make your cocktail taste much better than using bottled or pre-made mixers.
2. Don’t skip the egg white: The egg white gives the cocktail its signature frothy texture and silky mouthfeel, so don’t omit it unless you have to.
3. Shake it hard: Shake the cocktail vigorously for at least 15-20 seconds to emulsify the egg white and create the foam on top.
