Author Notes: No bottled sour mix allowed! Just a great spirit, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup. Here, Johnnie Walker Red Label adds a subtle, smoky flavor which balances out the bright citrus and adds just a touch of complexity—perfect for a version without egg white, on or off the rocks. Try changing up the bitters if you want to tweak the drink just a bit; orange, rhubarb, hopped grapefruit, even plum will all work well here. —Carey Jones
