Time-Out: Cherry Whiskey Sours + A GIVEAWAY

Print Friendly and PDF
As you all know, my by far favorite liquor is whiskey.  But for some reason, when I tell this to people, they are always surprised.  Do I not look like a whiskey girl to you?  I'm not sure.  John, of course, hates whiskey.  Sure, he tries.  Sometimes he even takes a sip, but most of the time, even when I'm drinking it, he has to lean far away.

I'm very particular to Jack Daniels.  A few years back, our last 5-person family vacation (since now we roll up with an entourage 8+ big), we stopped at the Jack Daniels Distillery in Tennessee.  By then, of course, I was an avid whiskey fan and couldn't believe we were actually there.  Where the magic happens!  The whole time, you just smelt whiskey...everywhere.  I couldn't get enough and to be honest, I could have lived there happily.

When we got the mixes from Scales Cocktails, I knew that at least one of these drinks HAD to feature my beloved whiskey.  John took a pass but there are plenty of more non-whiskey drinks to keep him happy (and you, if you also don't think whiskey is a fun choice for a good time)!

2 cups Scales Cocktails Sweet & Sour Mix
2/3 cup cherries, pitted
1/4 cup grenadine

  1. What a fun recipe! I haven't had a whiskey sour in ages. My favorite liquor is probably vodka -- I like that you don't really taste it in mixed drinks.
