Today’s classic cocktail comes to us straight from the nineteen-teens, and trust us that when you taste it you will feel like you are sitting in a horse and buggy, trotting down a dirt road in old New York.
We think it has been well established by now that we here at The Woman At The Bar love whiskey. Specifically, American whiskey — aka, bourbon and rye. One of the frist drinks that turned us on to this delectable stuff was the classic Whiskey Sour, so it’s probably time that we cover that on the blog, don’t you think?
To start this special holiday weekend off, we are going to recap the coverage we have done on our favorite liqueurs, and give you a handy dandy list ranked in order of importance so you can prioritize your home bar purchases!
When we started to plan out what we would focus on for this week’s liquor spotlight we initially dismissed Luxardo simply because we assumed we had already covered it in the past. When we discovered upon further investigation that no, we had NOT ever covered the liqueur in-depth we were both shocked and appalled — and we knew that this slight had to be rectified immediately.
So lets talk about Luxardo, maraschino cherries, and why you shouldn’t have one without the other!
