Yum Alert: How to make a PROPER Whiskey Sour

Sweet & Sour Mix = GROSS.

I’m a huge NON-fan of using gross sweet & sour mix in a whiskey sour cocktail, mostly due to my being the only person in my family & immediate group of friends who will even take part in drinking such a cocktail.

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes. 4 little words that mean the world to me.

Whisky! In a Can!

FINALLY. FINALLY. I’m getting so sick of people looking at me funny every time I casually swig out of whichever whisky bottle I hold close each evening. At least the Panamanians understand me.

But anyway, this..this I can do! Three ingredients..it doesn’t get much easier. I give you a great little recipe for a delish way to warm up those cold winter nights, plus... More...
