Tropical Whiskey Sour Cocktail

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required and understand the steps and timings involved.

The Whiskey Sour is a classic cocktail made with whiskey (usually bourbon), lemon juice, and sugar.

But since we LOVE tropical flavors here on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, we’ve turned a classic whiskey drink into a fruity delight!

Two are two flavors of whiskey are shaken with fruit juices, and a shot of rum is floated on top.

So if you like trying new cocktails, and looking for a refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot day, be sure to give this Tropical Whiskey Sour cocktail a try!

Tropical Whiskey Sour Variations

I like to try and give variations on the cocktails shared on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, like how to turn the cocktail into a mocktail so that non-drinkers (and kids if suitable) can enjoy the drink too!

Virgin Tropical Sour Mocktail (Non-Alcoholic)

So that non-drinkers can enjoy a Tropical Sour we simply remove the alcohol and make some tweaks!

In a cocktail shaker, shake together:

Pour into ice-filled glasses, top up with Lemon-Lime Soda, and garnish with fruit as desired. Makes 2 drinks.

I love the Monin brand of syrups as there are lots of flavors and they are a very versatile ingredient that can be used in cocktails, mocktails, coffee, cocoa, shakes, smoothies, and more.

I haven’t made the mocktail version, so I recommend adding the syrups to taste as they may add a sweetness that you may not necessarily get from alcoholic liqueurs.

For adults who would still like to enjoy the taste of alcohol in their mocktail, you could try non-alcoholic whiskey or bourbon, as well as rum alternatives. In the UK, try Lyre’s, which is also available on Amazon in the UK and There are other brands, but this one was more widely available.

Simply use the non-alcoholic alternatives instead of the alcoholic ones in the recipe card. For added tropical flavor, you could also add some syrup as in the other non-alcoholic version.

Frozen Tropical Sour

Want to turn this tropical drink into a frozen slushie? Easy! Put all the ingredients in a blender with a generous amount of ice – then blend till smooth. Serve with a straw, and watch out for brain freeze! You could do the same with the mocktail version too.

Tropical Whiskey Sours For a Crowd!

Want to make a big batch of this whiskey drink for a party or gathering? It’s so easy!

As long as you use the same measuring container (glass, cup, jug, etc.,) for the “1 part”, the ratios will be correct and you can make as much as you need to.

Serve the large batch cocktail in drinks dispensers, or pitchers, or go really retro and serve from a punch bowl! Whichever container best suits your event (and the drink!).

To make a big batch of Tropical Whiskey Sour, mix together:

  • 2 parts Glenlivet Caribbean Whiskey
  • 2 parts Jameson Orange Whiskey
  • 4 parts Tropicana Caribbean Juice or Tropical Juice
  • 4 parts Orange Juice
  • 2 parts Lemon Juice
  • 1 part Spiced Rum

Make sure you add plenty of ice to your serving container of choice to keep the cocktail chilled. And you can add some fruit garnish in there too such as maraschino cherries, pineapple chunks, orange slices, and lemon slices.

Or why not skewer the fruit onto cocktail picks for guests to garnish their drink?
