Celebrate milestones with our festive Whiskey Sour Celebration Shot, a twist on the classic with a hint of cola.

Did you know?

Did you know that the Whiskey Sour first appeared in print in 1862 in the Bartender's Guide by Jerry Thomas, also known as 'the father of American mixology'?

If you're looking to mark a special occasion with a bit of a kick, our Whiskey Sour Celebration Shot is the perfect toast to good times and great company. This cocktail captures the essence of celebration with its zesty sour notes balanced by the sweet, caramel undercurrents of whiskey and cola.

Traditionally, whiskey sours have been lifting spirits since the 1870s, their popularity enduring through the Roaring Twenties and re-emerging in modern craft cocktail bars around the world. Our unique take incorporates cola for added sweetness and complexity, served in a shot glass to keep the festivities lively and energetic.

With each chilled shot, you'll be joining a lineage of revelers who've paired life's milestones with the timeless combination of whiskey and citrus. Start your own tradition tonight!
