Why You’ll Love this Whiskey Sour Recipe

Besides the fact that this is a super easy cocktail to pull together (just squeeze some citrus and shake it with a sweetener and whiskey!) it’s got lovely flavorful notes that are both sweet and sour.

The blood orange brings a balanced citrus flavor that enhances the lemon, which can sometimes be a little mouth-puckering on it’s own. This cocktail is a beautiful deep orange-red color that would be great at a cocktails and canapés night or a holiday brunch.
