Whisky Sour

Meet my other addiction- whisky sours.  To say I'm an amateur mixologist would be an understatement.  I loved Midori sours in college, so the idea that I could make my own sour mix was enthralling to me.  Even better, it comes together very easily, especially if you go the bottle juice route.  Try to get a good quality bottled juice (oxymoron???) since it's a big part of the flavor.

3/4 cup whiskey (recommended: Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed or bottled lemon juice (4 lemons)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed or bottled lime juice (4 limes)
2/3 cup sugar syrup (see note)
Ice cubes
Maraschino cherries

Combine the whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice, and syrup. Chill in the fridge and serve up or on the rocks with a maraschino cherry.

Note: To make the sugar syrup, heat 1 cup of warm tap water and 1 cup of sugar in the microwave for about 2 minutes.  Stir until dissolved.  Chill prior to making.
