This is a great whiskey sour recipe! The only substitution I made was to use meringue powder (which I usually use for making icing) instead of the egg whites, and it worked perfectly. It's also a good substitute if you're concerned with using raw eggs. I definitely recommend not skipping the froth. I also made a small batch of simple syrup (gravy) by microwaving 1/4 cup sugar with 1/4 cup water in a custard cup. Any leftover syrup can be refrigerated for later use and is also great for sweetening iced tea. Thanks for posting!
