When it comes to a delicious Springtime drink that any guest will love - Whiskey Sours are always a great go-to. In the words of Ina Garten herself, "I like to greet my friends with a drink in my hand" - and I absolutely am the same! I think a good drink is the perfect icebreaker when having guests over and you really can't go wrong with a good Sour.
Here's Ina's recipe:
- 3/4 cup Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
- 2/3 cup sugar syrup
- Maraschino cherries
Combine the whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice, and syrup. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, and fill two-thirds full with the cocktail mixture. Shake for 30 seconds and pour into martini glasses. Add a maraschino cherry and serve ice cold.
