Whiskey Tiki Sour

Picture of Heather Wibbels, Cocktail Contessa, pouring a cocktailHeather Wibbels
Straddle the line between tiki and classic whiskey sours with this Whiskey Tiki Sour. Using orgeat and a smidge of pineapple juice, it’s got a hint of the tiki in it to balance out the bracing nature of a 100 proof bourbon or rye.

Servings 1


  • 2 oz 100 proof bourbon or rye
  • ¾ oz orgeat see notes for substitution
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • ½ oz lemon juice
  • 1 bar spoon allspice dram
  • 2 droppers Bittermen’s ‘Tiki’ bitters
  • Garnish: fresh or dried pineapple garnish, mint, and a cherry or two


  • Combine the bourbon, orgeat, allspice dram, pineapple juice, and lemon juice with the tiki bitters in the mixing tin. Next, fill with ice and shake 10-12 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass or over ice in a rocks glass, depending on how fancy you want to be. Garnish with pineapple and mint if it’s in season. Add a cherry or two if it suits you.


If you don’t have orgeat on hand, add ½ oz simple syrup, a barspoon of amaretto and a barspoon of orange curacao or other orange liqueur.
