Homemade Whiskey Sours

This is my absolute favorite cocktail the elbow grease that's involved in hand squeezing 20 lemons and limes is so totally worth it.

*Ok here it goes after you try this you just may want to buy a juicer it's that yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 3/4 -2 cups of whiskey......... (I use Canadian whiskey because I'm Canadian and that's how I roll)

  • 2 cups of simple syrup (recipe to follow)

  • 2 cups of crushed ice

Directions

Alright now take a big pitcher and add  all ingredients to the pitcher, stir well and enjoy!

Please note I like more of a sour flavor if you like it sweeter than add more sugar when making the simple syrup.

I serve this with a maraschino cherry in the glass also a splash of the cherry juice makes the drink very pretty to look at.

Cheers and share with a friend!!
