It's another day in quarantine, which means another cocktail to help you get through it. Today's featured drink is the Whiskey Sour, a drink that packs a lot of citrus flavor and a little sweetness.
You can make a Whiskey Sour really easily by going to your local grocery or liquor store and picking up a bottle of already-made sours mix. But that's not as fun or fresh as making it from scratch.
Mixing the whole drink together yourself isn't difficult by any means. You just need a few more ingredients. For this drink, we'll again use the Ragged Branch rye whiskey, but any rye that you have in your liquor cabinet will work.
2.5 oz. rye whiskey
1 oz. lemon juice
1/3 oz. simple syrup
1 maraschino cherry (garnish)
1 orange slice (garnish)
1. Add rye, lemon juice and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake
2. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass (can be served over ice or straight up)
3. Add orange slice and cherry for garnish
