Peach Whiskey Sour Ingredients
As with all sour cocktails, this peach version contains a liquor, a citrus and a sweetener (in this case simple syrup).
The great thing about this peach whiskey sour is that you can make it at any time of year as you don’t need fresh peaches.
This is a simple cocktail that is made like all whiskey sours with egg white to make it look foamy.
To make this cocktail you need:
- Peach schnapps
- Lemon juice
- Simple syrup
- egg whites (see below for a vegan option)
If you are not planning on using egg whites, then all you need is a jigger to measure your shots.

Don’t have the tools you need?
If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, a large mason jar works just as well in a pinch.
Use the mason jar lid or a plate to strain the drink if you don’t own a strainer.
Why does this cocktail contain egg white?
The egg white is optional in this cocktail as it doesn’t actually add any flavor to the drink.
The purpose of adding it into the recipe is to give the cocktail the signature foam that makes a whiskey sour so popular.
What can I use instead of egg whites?
If you don’t want to use egg whites, one option is to do what is known as a vegan dry shake is when you add the liquid from a can of chickpeas.
This will give you creamy texture without any dairy ingredients in your recipe. The liquid in a can of chickpeas is known as aquafaba so you might see this option mention as an aquafaba dry shake or a vegan dry shake.
I am going to give the instructions on how to make both versions of this cocktail so you can decide which one you want to do.
How to make a Peach Whiskey Sour With Egg White Foam
To make the foamy head, you want to do a dry shake to make sure the egg white froths and makes a beautiful looking cocktail when you are done.
The dry shake achieves this by whipping air into your egg whites and making them as frothy as possible.
Here’s how to make the drink using egg whites:
- Add the ingredients for the cocktail into a cocktail shaker (put the egg white in last)
- Shake them vigorously for at least 30 seconds.
- After dry–shaking, add ice and shake the mixture again then strain and pour into glasses.
