The Forbidden Sour Cocktail is actually very easy to prepare and can be made within a few minutes even by absolute cocktail beginners. First measure all the ingredients with a jigger or bar measure and put them into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Now add a few ice cubes to the shaker and shake well. Make sure that the shaker is well closed. After about 20 seconds, you can strain the mix through a bar strainer into a tumbler filled with ice. Now just garnish with a cocktail cherry or lemon zest and then serve or enjoy yourself!

The whisky cocktail impresses with an unusual flavour profile, which is characterised by bourbon and underlined by fruity-sweet flavours. The harmony between bitter-alcoholic and fruity-sweet is excellent and has already surprised one or two whisky cocktail critics. Try the drink yourself and experience its unique taste profile!
