We recently shared with you an amazing orange whiskey sour recipe, and we figured it was time to come around again with a different variation: the cherry whiskey sour.

The egg white is left out of this version, but we didn’t skimp on one important thing – the egg white whipped cream on top.

Maybe it’s because I’m a girl, but I love cherry cocktails . . . however this one doesn’t seem too feminine just by looks alone.

The flavor is smooth and tart – good enough that a man will get over any girly drink hesitations just to have one. The egg white whipped cream on top is a must in my opinion. Learn how to make this delicious whiskey sour cocktail below.
