The Perfect Whiskey Sour with Jack Daniels20:54:00
Let's face it, the summer is pretty much over in Northern Ireland. As the evenings get darker and cooler, thoughts turn to comfort and warmth and that often means a little night cap.
Jack Daniels sent me the recipe for the perfect whiskey sour and I thought I would give it a little try. When I drink spirits, its usually vodka or gin; cool, refreshing drinks. However, I've often said I would like to find warm, cosy drink and I think I've found it!
Here's the ingredients
- 50ml Jack Daniels No.7 Sour
- 25ml Lemon Juice
- 15ml Sugar Syrup (1:1)
- 2-3 dash Angostura Bitters
Start with 50ml of Jack Daniels No.7 Sour...that's 2 shots to you and me.
Add 25ml of lemon juice (roughly the juice of 1 lemon) , 15ml sugar syrup and few dashes of Angostura bitters to your shaker
The Jack Daniels Sour is served in a traditional short glass, with cubed ice (or spherical if you're pretentious like me). The glass is garnished with a lemon twist; just run a vegetable peeler over the lemon you juiced for the blend.
Classic whiskey cocktails like the sour and the Old Fashioned are having something of a renaissance lately, I think Mad Men is most likely the inspiration. So channel your inner Don Draper, mix yourself a Jack Daniels Sour and welcome in autumn!
