I have to confess – it’s the 9th of January, I’ve been back to work for a week, and I still had Meyer lemons lurking on the counter top from the holiday. I bet you thought I was going to confess to still having holiday decorations up? Yeah – that, too. Both the Meyer lemon situation and the holiday decoration situation have been resolved. In order to reward myself for wrapping up all the ornaments and getting the tree down, I made this beauty of a cocktail.
I had a blood orange still from last week’s salad, so with the blood orange, the Meyer lemon, some good whiskey and a little maple syrup, this Whiskey sour was born.
Citrus Whiskey Sour
Juice from 1 blood orange
Juice from 1 Meyer lemon
2 ounces whiskey
1 ounce maple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a glass and stir. Add ice. Enjoy!
