Whiskey Sour

A little sour, a little sweet, and a lot of whiskey. What’s not to like?

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • 2 ounces bourbon or rye whiskey (use something that’s good quality, but you don’t need to break out your most expensive bottle for this cocktail)
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ice
  • 1 candied black cherry or maraschino cherry

Combine everything except the cherry in a cocktail shaker and shake.  Pour into a martini glass and add the cherry.

Taste before you pour and add more sugar if needed.  I like my cocktails on the sour side.
