Whiskey Sour Mocktail Recipe
The whiskey sour has a fascinating history as far back as the British Navy in the 1700s. Back then, they used whiskey to pair with the citrus they needed to combat scurvy. A few hundred years since then, we no longer have to worry about any seafaring disease. But we can still enjoy a sweet and sharp cocktail, and with Seir Hill’s specialized Mashville™ blend, you can do so at any point in the day.
Mashville™ is a whiskey alternative that delivers the same burn and complex flavor of the spirit it’s modeled after. This whiskey sour non-alcoholic drink recipe makes a non-alcoholic whiskey sour that tastes how you want without the guilt or weight of intoxication. And mixing it is so easy you’ll be happy to do it again and again!
Ingredients for a Non-Alcoholic Whiskey Sour:
- 2 ounces Mashville
- 1 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed if possible
- ¾ ounce simple syrup
- 1 egg white (optional)
How to Make a Mashville Whiskey Sour
Our whiskey sour mocktail doesn’t take much to put together. All you really need to do is mix the ingredients in a shaker with ice until chilled. Then you can strain your mixture into rocks over ice and enjoy a perfect non-alcoholic whiskey sour.
Those unfamiliar with mixed drinks may shudder at the thought of putting an egg white in a cocktail. Believe it or not, it won’t make your whiskey sour taste like breakfast. When mixed with the rest of your ingredients, the egg white adds a rich texture and a creaminess not unlike a milkshake for grown-ups.
And egg whites aren’t even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to variations of this classic drink.
Whiskey Sour Mocktail Variations
There is so much you can do with our non-alcoholic whiskey sour, much of it based on things you can find in your fridge right now! For instance, if you have some kind of orange marmalade, you can mix a teaspoon into your shaker with the other ingredients to add more depth to the citrus flavor profile. You can also muddle maraschino cherries for gorgeous color and fruity taste.
You can boil your simple syrup with a sprig of rosemary or garnish with a zested orange peel. That’s one of the major appeals of alcoholic-free drinks like our whiskey sour mocktail, in that it allows you to experiment for a drink that’s just as fitting in the morning as it is in the evening.
But not all mocktails need to be alcohol-free. If you’re looking for a bit of a buzz in your virgin whiskey sour, all you need to do is take your mixed ingredients and slowly pour a ½ ounce of red wine so that it floats to the top of your drink. This way you can enjoy a mixed drink that’ll allow you to unwind and enjoy the moment without making you lose presence.
You don’t need to be a sailor to enjoy a non- or low-alcoholic whiskey sour. So dock your ship, open a bottle of Mashville™, and get your day going right.
