    Fresh Whiskey Sours

    For Easter, I made some killer whiskey sours, based heavily on an Ida Gartner recipe. Fresh made cocktails take a lot of work, but they are very much worth the effort. My wife, who has always hated anything with bourbon in it, had three of these.



    • 3/4 cup Basil Haden
    • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
    • Zest of one lemon
    • Zest of one lime
    • 2/3 cup brown sugar syrup (see below)
    • Ice cubes
    • Maraschino cherries


    Combine the whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice, lemon zest, lime zest and syrup. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and pour in the drink mix 2/3 full. Shake for 15 seconds and pour into glasses. Add a maraschino cherry and serve ice cold.

    To make the sugar syrup, bring 1 cup of water and 2 cups of light brown sugar to a boil, and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved. Chill before using.

    On Easter, I doubled the recipe (), and put it everything but the ice in a blender. Once I whipped it up there, I served it over ice.

    Here is the original:

    Mine uses a different recipe for the sugar syrup, adds in fresh zest, and I don't recommend Jack for anything.

    I bet this would be great with a dry rye and raw cane sugar as well, for something a bit less sweet.

    If you don't enjoy whiskey sours, fuck you.
