Cocktail Series: Simple Bourbon Whiskey Sour

Photos by Abby Jiu

We're kicking off our new cocktail series with a simple bourbon whiskey sour made by our food contributor extraordinaire, Amanda Franklin. This drink is easy, refreshing, and perfect if you're a fan of bourbon whiskey. I have to say I am not a huge fan of whiskey at all but with the addition of fresh lemon and extra orange juice even I liked it.

1/2 Dried cherries (sweetened) soaked in 1/4 c. hot water (you will have a ton left over, add to oatmeal, fro-yo, serve w/ cheese) (store in fridge for a week)

Shake bourbon, orange juice  + lemon juice, pour over ice and garnish with cherries.
