Whiskey Sour

Great Drink For A Warm Spring Day!

Whiskey is not my first drink of choice, but as far as hard alcohol goes, it’s one I can certainly drink. Back in my 20s, Jack and cokes were my go-to and I proudly introduced the woman, who I now call my BFF, to this scrumptious cocktail at my bachelorette party almost 23 years ago.

Today, it is still her drink of choice.

Another favorite whiskey drink of mine is the Manhattan. I don’t drink these very often anymore, but if I were to, I think I could only handle one!

This article is all about the Whiskey Sour – this is a delicious drink to enjoy on a warm spring day. They are easy to make, serve, and share with your friends and neighbors in Seville. Grab your cocktail shaker, ingredients below (enough to make a bunch), and some friends and you’ll be set.


Whiskey Sour

Serves 1

1 oz lemon juice
1 oz sugar
2 oz water
1.5 oz whiskey (Jack Daniels is my choice)
Maraschino Cherry (for garnish)

In a cocktail shaker, combine lemon juice, sugar, and water.
Shake to combine and dissolve sugar.
Add whiskey, shake that shaker!
Pour into a rocks glass filled with ice.
Garnish with cherry.

What do you think of that glass in the photo? It came straight out of my Great Grandma Valente’s home. I have four glasses and a pitcher, yes, an entire set that has to be at least 65 years old. My paternal grandfather saved those, specifically for me, when I was just a little girl. How did he know how much I’d appreciate them as an adult? I think they are awesome.
