Alright folks, it’s Friday. It’s a three-day weekend. This means it is time to party. We’re going to share a drink with you that is often overlooked. The whiskey sour is a classic cocktail. The problem, though, is that it is often made with sweet and sour mix. No. No. No. That is an insult to a real whiskey sour. This is only true way to make one.
2 ounces rye or blended whiskey
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon superfine sugar or simple syrup
Slice of orange or lemon (or both) and a maraschino cherry
Combine the whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar with ice in a shaker and shake to your heart’s content. Strain over ice into a chilled cocktail glass or highball glass. Garnish with an orange or lemon slice (or both) and a maraschino cherry.
