When my Facebook friend Elizabeth Chappell posted this wonderful recipe for a whiskey sour, I became nostalgic. When I was a tenth grader at the Westminster Schools in Atlanta my parents traveled to Europe for a week leaving me with a neighbor. My parents made the big mistake of giving me a key to the house. Every day after school, my friends and I would gather at my house and make whiskey sours. We thought we were so sophisticated!

Here’s Elizabeth’s recipe for a whiskey sour.

Juice one lemon, lime, and orange.

Bring one cup of water to boil. Dissolve a fourth a cup of sugar and let cool.

Blend water with the lemon, lime, and orange juices.

Add a half cup of 1816 Evan Williams bourbon (or your favorite bourbon)

Garnish with orange slice.
