And even though it's an "old school" drink.... it's REALLY quite yum and I think you should give it a try on Saturday to celebrate the Day!
You can buy the store mix but I find Sour Mix to be SO easy to make fresh that it's almost harder to get the Mix bottle open!
WHAT YOU NEED:
1/3 cup whiskey (I used Jack Daniel's "Green Label" Tennessee Whiskey)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (2 limes)
1/3 cup simple syrup
WHAT YOU DO:
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and pour in the whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice, and syrup. Shake, Shake, SHAKE! and pour into your glass, ice & all. Traditional garnish would be a maraschino cherry and orange slice, I kicked it up with a couple raspberries.
