Ina Garten's Fresh Whiskey Sours

We are adoring fans of the cheerful Ina Garten aka the Barefoot Contessa, chef and host of a Food Network show by the same nickname. We've taken a particular liking to her whiskey sour recipe which we think is a perfect after-work cocktail. So gather your career gal pals together after 5 and enjoy one today!

Ina Garten's Fresh Whiskey Sours

Prep Time: 5 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 4 cocktails

3/4 cup whiskey (recommended: Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey) Ina Garten's Fresh Whiskey Sours
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (4 lemons)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
2/3 cup sugar syrup*
Ice cubes
Maraschino cherries

Combine the whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice, and syrup. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and pour in the drink mix 2/3 full. Shake for 15 seconds and pour into glasses. Add a maraschino cherry and serve ice cold.

*Note: To make the sugar syrup, bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil, and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved. Chill before using.
