Cran-Blood Orange Whiskey Sour
The perfect balance of sweetness and sour! A good whiskey sour is such a classic and this recipe is a holiday twist on the traditional.
One of my favorite drinks is a well made whiskey sour, specifically from a little tucked away vegan restaurant in Philly call, Charlie Was A Sinner. They make the best Whiskey sour I’ve ever had. A least to me it is! Before moving to Miami that was one of the spot my husband Chris and I would frequent on Date nights.
What is a Whiskey Sour?
A whiskey sour is a classic mix drink, that traditionally has whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar. It’s usually garnished with a lemon slice and a maraschino cherry. It’s shaken, not stirred and served into a glass, as is. Although, it can also be served over ice.
This cran-blood orange whiskey sour is perfect for when hosting, holiday gatherings. I feel like a good whiskey sour makes someone look like they really know what they are doing. This recipe is festive and perfect for November and December. Have it with friends, have it with family, heck have it by yourself, no one is judging!
You can make this drink using the traditional lemon juice instead of the blood orange, if you can’t find any near you.
