• 2 ounces whiskey
• 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
• 1 teaspoon sugar
• 1 egg white (optional—use if you’re feeling mildly adventurous, or need a drink with a little more gravitas)
Pour whiskey, lemon juice and sugar into cocktail shaker, top with ice and shake for ten seconds. Strain into Old-Fashioned glass. Garnishing with orange is optional.
