This is the bourbon sour recipe I make far too often. I think it’s the best bourbon sour out there. It’s maybe a little too good, if you know what I mean



  • 2 shots good quality bourbon
  • 1 shot triple sec
  • 1 shot cranberry juice
  • 1 shot fresh lime


  1. Put everything into a shaker with ice. Shake, shake, shake.
  2. Serve in a martini or rocks glass with a slice of lime for garnish.
