Erik's recipe is slightly more acidic than the other 3 finalists, I felt that the balance was slightly off (personally). The recipe calls for a Bourbon Whiskey and is close to what would be referred to as a traditional Whiskey Sour.
The top 3 Whiskey Sour recipes:

  2. Erik Adkins' Whiskey Sour
  3. Neal Bodenheimer's Whiskey Sour
