Friday Night Cocktails, Campbeltown – Whisky Sour

This July we’re taking a look at some of the most well-known whisky cocktails out there! Each week we will have a cocktail to fit with one of the five Scottish whisky producing regions. So stay tuned for our Friday Night Cocktails and give them a try yourself!

Campbeltown whiskies are often known to have gentle vanilla characteristics, a nice contrast to the bitters in this cocktail!

Whisky Sour


1 shot lemon juice

1/2 shot sugar syrup

2 dashes Angostura bitters

2 shots Campbeltown Scotch whisky

1/2 fresh egg white

Orange slices and cherries to garnish


Gather all the ingredients together.

Grab a mixing glass and fill it up with ice, before pouring in the whisky, syrup, bitters, lemon juice & egg whites.

Shake hard for around 30 seconds (you’re looking to froth up the egg whites).

Find yourself a chilled cocktail glass, fill it with ice and strain the liquid into it.

To serve, garnish with your maraschino cherries and oranges – enjoy!

Slàinte Mhath!

*You can of course use whiskies from any of the other fours whisky producing regions – Lowland, Highland, Speyside & Islay.
