Happy Hour: Whiskey Sour Weekend

Happy Hour

Happy Friday! I’m still on a whiskey kick so I figured I’d share a Whiskey Sour recipe.

I saw Ina Garten’s conversation with Melissa McCarthy on Discovery+ (I am obsessed) and they made whiskey sours, which inspired me. So, for the last few weeks we’ve been trying different recipes, and I have to be honest with you: Ina’s is the best.

I tried to make it single-serve and couldn’t get the proportions just right, so just go ahead and make the pitcher to get the best flavor (we found that it made 3 drinks, not 4, but maybe we like a heavy pour, huh?).

  • 3/4 cup Whiskey (you know I use Maker’s Mark)
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2/3 cup sugar syrup
  • Maraschino cherries

To be honest, we just stirred in the pitcher and poured over ice, garnishing with a cherry. But Ina tells us to shake with ice—up to you!

Cheers to the weekend! Now onto some weekend reading…
