Non-Alcoholic Whiskey Sour Cocktail Recipe

Non-Alcoholic Whiskey Sour Cocktail

The whiskey sour might just be one of the world’s greatest cocktails. It’s easy to make, goes down smooth year-round, and is appropriate for any occasion or celebration. And with the bright bite of lemon juice, this cocktail is enjoyed even by those who swear “they don’t like the taste of whiskey”.


And for those who are sober curious or completely alcohol-free, you can now enjoy this classic cocktail in a guilt-free, non-alcoholic form, thanks to the growing crop of non-alcoholic whiskey alternatives.


For our take on the traditional whiskey sour recipe, we opted to use Lyre’s American Malt Non-Alcoholic Spirit. If you’ve yet to try this alcohol-free whiskey, you’re in for a treat. Lyre’s does a great job retaining the bold bite and caramel tones of your favorite traditional whiskey, but without the alcohol. And when combined with fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white, you’re left with a cocktail as flavorful and enjoyable as anything you’ve ever experienced at a party or a bar, and the perfect compliment to good company and perhaps, if you're so inclined, a Herrera Esteli Habano cigar?


Whether you’re celebrating something special or just plopped in front of the TV for the night, this non-alcoholic cocktail is the perfect complement to any evening. Read on for the ingredients and instructions for making our classic alcohol-free whiskey sour recipe:
