Apple Whiskey Sour

I love taking a classic cocktail and adding new flavors. Usually, this is to make it a holiday flavored cocktail, and in this case, the perfect fall cocktail. Taking a traditional whiskey sour and combining it with apple cider gives a fall flavored twist to this cocktail.


  • Bourbon whiskey- This will add a sweet, smokey flavor.
  • Apple cider- This will be the base of your mixture and should be chilled.
  • Simple syrup- Make your own simple syrup or use store bought.
  • Lemon juice- This will add for the signature sour flavor.
  • Orange bitters- The orange bitters add flavor and work as a garnish.
  • Ice- The ice will help to keep your drink cool while serving.

How to Make Apple Whiskey Sour

Take all your ingredients listed and pour into a cocktail shaker.

Be sure to shake and combine your ingredients well until fully mixed.

Slowly pour your mixture over ice.

Garnish your drink with orange bitters.

Serve and enjoy!

What is Whiskey Sour Made Of?

Whiskey sour is a great mixture of flavors. Whiskey sour is made of bourbon whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar. You also have the option of adding a dash of egg white, but for a regular Whiskey sour, it just calls for those three ingredients.

Is Whiskey Sour a Girly Drink?

Whiskey Sour can be a drink for most men and women. In the eyes of some, the drink needs to have a fun color or sweetener added or even a little umbrella for looks to be considered a girly drink. If you are the person for looks, it would not be girly. If you are more for the flavoring and a new taste, it’s for you.
