Forget that cloyingly sweet, lip-puckering cocktail we all remember from our college days—when made from scratch and in the right proportions, the whiskey sour is one of our favorite crowd-pleasing libations. We've pulled together 15 variations on the drink, from the classic whiskey version made frothy with egg white to the Gold Rush, made with a spicy ginger liqueur, and the Baltimore Bang, which adds a fruity cognac—all perfectly sweet, sour, with just the right amount of bite.
