Let me show you how to you make a Strawberry Whiskey Sour!

In this recipe, I've used a peated Irish whiskey, from Velvet Cap, which has a nice balance of smoky and fruity red berries, but if you can't find it, or if you don't like smoky whiskey, you can use whatever whiskey you want!

The key here is to use a really good quality strawberry syrup to get a nice flavour as well as the look you want. If you muddle strawberries, you will get a more natural, but tart flavour, like a strawberry whiskey smash, but this here is going to be a strawberry whiskey sour, which is a bit smoother, a bit sweeter, and has a rich, thick texture.

You can make your own syrup, or like me, use a real fruit syrup like this one from Drink Botanicals, but just don't use those sugar syrups with artificial flavours as it won't have the same rich, natural taste!

Also always use fresh lemon juice for a better flavour and an egg white for a nice, rich texture!

I'm a total whiskey nerd and this channel is all about Whiskey, Whisky, Bourbon, Rye, Pot Still Whiskey and Single Malt Whiskey. I'm always on the hunt for the best whiskey and love making whiskey review videos. My passion is for Irish whiskey, but I'm open to looking for the best Bourbon or the best scotch too!

I'm an Irishman, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying whiskeys from all around the world, from Kentucky bourbon to Japanese single malts. I also love making cocktails, especially whiskey cocktails (or whisky cocktails) and really enjoy taking a classic recipe and adding my own twist to it, or making simple, 3 ingredient cocktails
