Now days? Pffft. Forget about it. A margarita with the mix requires taking a Zantac before I drink, and sometimes another before I go to bed. And STILL, I am woken up at 2am with that heartburn. Uggg.
So when I saw a Whiskey Sour recipe on line with just 3 ingredients (well, the orange and cherry too), I was so on top of it and couldn't wait to give it a try!
And even better was the fact that I had some nice bourbon sitting on the bar, just waiting for a special day to come around ... the day had arrived!
2 ounces of good bourbon
juice of a half lemon (mind you, I use Costco sized lemons which are behemoth ... so I only used a good squeeze)
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
Toss all 3 into a shaker. Add ice and shake like you mean it.
Strain drink over new ice in a short short glass. Garnish with a slice of orange and a cherry. If you want a little sweeter, feel free to add a splash of the cherry juice, but not too much, otherwise it will be RED ...
Sip and enjoy!
*As always, please drink in moderation, and NEVER EVER drive home if you've been drinking. Please!*
