Hey everyone, this is a quickie that those of you who enjoy the Lavender Whiskey Sour will enjoy. I’m actually on my lunch break from work so excuse the typos!
The Whiskey Sour is my favorite cocktail. Not only is it great in its own right but if you’re just beginning to make your own drinks, it’s a great way to start your journey through cocktails. With some leftover mint and plums, I made this cocktail last night for my roommate after she had a hard day at work. Not going to brag but she did ask for seconds, just sayin’. (I’ll save my Best Roommate Award speech for another time).
Want the recipe? You got it.
Mint Plum Whiskey Sour
- Mint (I just used a few leaves)
- Half a plum, sliced
- 1.5 oz bourbon (I used Bulleit)
- 1 oz lemon juice
- .5 Simple Syrup (1 part water + 1 part sugar)
- A slice of plum for garnish
- A cocktail* or rocks glass
How to Make it:
In your cocktail shaker, throw in your mint leaves and your plum slices and lightly muddle. Once that’s all done, add all the rest of the ingredients in your shaker, fill with ice and give it a nice good shake. Next, grab your glass (if you have a rocks glass, fill it with ice), and strain the mixture into it (if you have a fine strainer, I’d recommend using that in addition to your usual hawthorne). Add the plum for garnish and enjoy!
Last but not least, I’m sure I can speak for both myself and Sara when we say thank you for all the great responses to our cocktail videos!
