Looking for a great Whiskey Sour

My spouse loves a Whiskey Sour made of course with fresh squeezed lime/lemon. Where should I take her for her birthday to get a great one. Great food would be worth a bonus.

  1. I'd go to Aburiya Toranoko or Lazy Ox for dinner, then drive a few minutes to Seven Grand whiskey bar for a whiskey sour.

    515 W 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014

    1. My go-to cocktail. Best one I've had is at Houston's. They make their own sour mix from a variety of fresh-squeezed citrus, plus a little bit of egg white so that it gets a nice foam when shaken.

      1. Just got this as part of an e-mail from the Border Grill.

        A classic cocktail inspired by Walter Lee Younger's drink of choice
        in "A Raisin in the Sun", with a Border Grill twist, of course.
        whiskey - fresh orange, lemon, lime juices

          1. The Varnish. Would also recommend trying similar sours with a whiskey base (Gold Rush, Blinker, etc.).
