Meyer Lemon Whiskey Sour

Out of the 3 mixed drinks at my sibling- and also [currently] brother-in-law’s interaction celebration, the Meyer lemon scotch sour went most promptly. Truthfully, I was surprised at its appeal– yet already I had actually expanded partial to the [not-your-grandfather’s] old made and also blood orange martini– and also wanted I made a lot more, partly since it was without a doubt the simplest to create. Water, sugar, a pair Meyer lemons as well as your favored gluten-free bourbon (mine’s Bulleit) are all you require– no sour mix! I enjoy the somewhat light level of acidity of the Meyer lemons, plus their somewhat orange, flower taste. These subtleties are recorded via using their juice, along with instilling the easy syrup with their peels (that make for an amazing, edible garnish [sweet lemon peel]. I like that with the refrigerator climate comes a vast( r) range of citrus, do not you?
