Hey guys! Have any of you tried making your own sour mix yet? If not, add that to your list, because I’m about to share my recipe for whiskey sours! This isn’t just any whiskey sour. It’s a fresher, sweeter homemade whiskey sour. This is one of those drinks where the old school recipe differs greatly from the restaurant version. So this isn’t a classic recipe (at all!). It’s the easy version, and I think it’s a great homemade mixed drink. Emma shared a classic recipe if you want to compare, chili cook-off style. 😀
2 ounces Whiskey (We like Maker’s Mark Whisky)
2 ounces sour mix (recipe here)
Mix the whiskey and sour mix in a medium sized glass. Add ice and top off with club soda. Stir and give it a little taste test. You can add more sour mix if you want more flavor. Garnish with a cherry and lemon slice. Enjoy!
These Luxardo cherries really are the best thing known to man. They’re a little pricey, but ever since Emma gifted me a bottle I’ll always have one in my fridge. They’re SO delicious and make homemade drinks a lot more legit feeling.
