Whiskey Sour, Bistro 33, May 2019

This was a rough week, with lots of bad personal new in my life. I was hoping that a nice Whiskey Sour might cheer me up. Alas, it was not to be.

Bistro 33 – The Review

Taste (3/10) – So sour! It’s overwhelming. This tastes like bad lemonade. Can barely taste sweet. No whiskey at all.

Presentation (2/5) – Half a garnish. A little darker than previous ones. Large glass

Balance (2/5) – No balance. Sour on the tip of the tongue and the back. Maybe a hint of sweet on the way back. Very little if any alcohol.

Correctness (1/5) – There is a maraschino cherry. That’s it. No orange, no egg white, not shaken. Added soda water?!

Delivery (1/x) – No flourish. No interaction.

Total (9/25) – What a mess. This is barely what I would call an actual whiskey sour. This is lemonade with liquor.

Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
