History of the Whiskey Sour

The oldest historical mention of a whisky sour prepared in the world comes from a newspaper published in Wisconsin in 1870.

In 1962, the Universidad del Cuyo published a story, which cited a Peruvian newspaper called El Comercio de Iquique as indicating that Elliott Stubb created the "whisky sour" in 1872
