#DOTW: Orange Whiskey Sour

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been unemployed since March, and the level of boredom is hitting unseen heights. Even my go-to cocktail are getting boring. If there is one thing I have enough of, it’s time. So I’m constantly cruising the internet, finding new recipes for sensible dinners, and definitely cocktails. Everyone loves a whiskey sour, but I’m always in the mood to stir things up, so how about an Orange Whiskey Sour? It sounded good to me, and I can now confirm, it also tastes good. As usual this cocktail takes minimum effort and just a few ingredients, we’re keeping it simple here!

What you’ll need”

  • 2 oz of Macallan 18
  • 1 oz of freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 1/4 oz simple syrup (if you like it very sweet)

Squeeze an orange (or more for more cocktails). Add ice to a cocktail glass and then add the whiskey. Pour in the simple syrup (if using), then top off with the juices. Stir well. Garnish with an orange slice.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
