If it wasn’t for this series, I certainly wouldn’t know how many days I’ve been home from work. The days are blurring together. Saturday looks a lot like Tuesday. But I can look forward to a different cocktail every day. And that is GOOD.
Today’s cocktail is the Whiskey Sour. My memory of this drink is of my 10 year high school reunion. It was open bar. I’m not a big drinker, so I had no idea what to order (and to go with beer or wine would be silly because we all know open bar = a world of possibilities and no one needs to experience FOMO over that). One of my besties from HS said she chooses one drink and sticks with it the whole night and in situations like there she chooses Whiskey Sours. And so it was. Good times.
You’ll need simple syrup for this. The good news is you can make simple syrup. It’s, well, simple.
- 4 oz blended whiskey
- 1 oz lemon juice (fresh would be ideal)
- 1 oz simple syrup
- Orange slice and maraschino cherry for garnish
Shake liquid ingredients with ice. Strain into chilled glass. Garnish with orange slice and cherry.
A little bit sweet, a little bit sour. A lot good. Kinda like life, right?
Next time you don’t know what to order, give this a go. If you love it, let me know. If you hate it, feel free to blame my HS bestie.
