Irish Whiskey Sour

This is a summer time and also uncomplicated scotch sour dish– far more ideal this moment of year (regardless of the ever-present clouds and also gusty weather condition ’round right here recently) than the Meyer lemon one I quickly stated in my last article. (I assure the last is coming. At some point. Suggesting when that really lemon is back in shops following wintertime … darn seasonality!) It’s most likely fairly clear now that I favor self-made rewards of all kinds to their store-bought equivalents. Therefore, you do not require a sour mix. Rather, I utilize light agave nectar and also normal ol’ lemons for a fresh-tasting, wonderful and also sour alternate. For a lighter taste, the Irish whisky is a good adjustment of speed from the typical Bourbon– I favor to book the smokier of both for the chillier months of the year. Which obviously suggests it’ll be back in turning come summertime since I reside in San Francisco (ha!).
