    Thumbs up Bourbon Sour

    When it warms up outside, I look forward to the occasional Whiskey Sour. Or in my case it must be the Bourbon Sour.

    A recent goal of mine was to perfect my recipe. Over the past few days I have tried a variety of store bought mixes, fresh lemons and bourbons.

    While I enjoy a tart cocktail, it is a requirement that the bourbon show through the sour mix so I can enjoy the bourbon. At the end of the day I chose a home made sweet and sour mix with Bonded Barton as my bourbon of choice. Here is my recipe:

    2 oz of freshly squeezed lemon juice (one large lemon)
    2 oz of simple sugar (more if you like a little sweeter cocktail)
    4 oz of VOB BIB

    Add to a shaker with cracked ice and shake for thirty seconds. Pour into the glass of your choice (I don't strain mine). I like a highball glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon and a cherry or two if you like.

    This is the best bourbon sour that I have ever had, I'll be serving this recipe at a party I'm going to this weekend. We'll see if the masses enjoy this recipe as well.

    Do you enjoy a whiskey sour? Do you have a favorite recipe?
