The Frisco Sour is a variation of the timeless Whiskey Sour – but has its own place as an elegant and classic cocktail.  It is one of the most celebrated sour cocktails, for those that prefer little tart in their taste. Just like any other cocktail, it is up to the mixologist or creator to find the perfect balance for the maximum satisfaction.

It is one of the most elegant cocktails that opts to use Benedictine, an herbal liqueur beverage that has a tradition shrouded in secrecy, as its exact ingredients are guarded to this day.


  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • ½ ounce of Benedictine
  • ½ ounce of lemon juice


  1. Add the whiskey, Benedictine and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass.


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

The Frisco Sour is a great way to enjoy a Whiskey Sour with a twist, or simply to switch it up and choose a cocktail that isn’t as common these days.  If you are searching for a garnish, an orange slice or a cherry will do the trick. It should be noted that some people opt to add egg whites in the drink, but this is certainly not necessary.

The truth is that the mix of whiskey, Benedictine, and lemon is an extremely unique concoction that may not be popular, but is very celebrated and well-known by mixologists in the know. The truth is that it is one of those cocktails that never fully took off, as it was eclipsed by the whiskey sour, not to mention the other popular cocktails that were moving in and out of the spotlight over the decades.

There is certainly an audience for the drink – whether you are a whiskey lover, a sour drink lover, or simply love anything with Benedictine in it – you are safe with this choice. Challenge the modern trend and order something classic and classy – a Frisco Sour!
