Jim Beam Black Sour

by James Stevenson

Looking forward to celebrating Father’s Day for all the fathers and father figures out there! Not only have we made this simple and delicious cocktail for y’all to replicate and enjoy but we have partnered with Jim Beam Black® Bourbon to share an amazing opportunity for you and your loved one 21+ to enjoy. I think Father’s Day should be spent the way so many have experienced it before you; by bonding over bourbon. This year, you can take that to the next level and give him the best gift of his life simply by checking out the Jim Beam Store. For the cost of a Jim Beam Black bottle ($24.99), a limited number of people will be able to purchase The Bonding Over Bourbon Experience that includes a trip to Louisville, an exclusive Jim Beam distillery tour and meeting with master distiller Fred Noe, a premium golf package and dinner for two at a local restaurant.

The classic Whiskey Sour cocktail was first recorded in Wisconsin way back in 1870, and variations have been created all over the globe ever since. Using different accentuating flavors and experimenting with plenty of whiskies, bourbon such as Jim Beam Black, which is extra-aged and bottled at 86-proof, is ideal for a cocktail like the Whiskey Sour.
