A Whiskey Sour with a little Cherry Sweetness to boot...
At a New Years Eve wedding, I discovered one of my new favorite drinks: A Whiskey Sour. I love the combination of tart, citrus flavors with strong and bold whiskey. It's like the perfect relationship. They bring out the best in each other. [D'awwww!]
On Monday, bf created an impromptu date night that consisted of delicious spicy fish tacos (get the recipe here) and these oh-so-yummy Whiskey Sweet 'N' Sours. As he explained it, we had no limes, so he was forced to work with lemons... and he decided to add a bit of sweetness to make the transition complete. After all, if you're changing one thing, you may as well change another. Gotta love that philosophy.
