Egg whites in sours

tinnywatty | Jun 21, 201210:42 PM     3

Is there a reason why egg white is a traditional addition to a whiskey sour, but not to any of the other sours (Daiquiri, Margarita, etc)? I have had a variation on the daiquiri containing egg white, with dark rum, but that was because I asked the bartender for a drink containing both of those ingredients. I quite like the addition of the egg white to the whiskey sour, and I'm curious if there is a reason, tradition or otherwise, why eggs aren't generally added to other sours.
