Popular in America during Prohibition, the whiskey sour used citrus and sugar to mask the flavor of what was often awful-tasting bootleg liquor. Now that we can get the good stuff again, this recipe has persisted as a mainstay behind bars ever since. This simple cocktail is a good drink to start with when you're learning how to become a great home bartender.
