This version turns up the intensity with a higher proportion of bourbon, delivering a punchier, boozy kick while maintaining the essential balance of sweet, tart, and strong flavors. It features the foundational elements of a traditional Whisky Sour—bourbon, lemon juice, and a touch of sweetness from gomme syrup, which helps to smooth out the edges and add a silky texture. The addition of a small amount of egg white (or aquafaba for a vegan alternative) can create a luxurious foam, giving it a creamy mouthfeel and a sophisticated look when served in a classic lowball glass. The Extra Strong Whisky Sour appeals to those who crave a more potent sip with the nostalgic flair of a time-honored cocktail.
