The Western Sour is a tiki drink only because it’s not a whiskey sour — that basically means we are using lime instead of lemon, it includes falernum (which is popular in tiki drinks) and… well, that’s really what does it. Now, a whiskey sour with some of the standard trade spices, ginger, allspice, clove, those are not unknown to variations on a whiskey sour (or through the use of bitters). However, changing it up to lime and including the spices does give it a bit more summer-focused appeal.

Sure, it’s not a far stretch from a Moscow mule version of a whiskey sour (or some strange julep), but it does give you a bit of an introduction to tiki without getting very crazy on complexity and flavor profile.

The Western Sour
– 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
– 1/4 oz sugar syrup
– 1/4 oz falernum
– 3/4 oz ginger beer, chilled
