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.
