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
- 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.
