Clementine Whiskey Sour - Fancy a Drink Bourbon Rye Whiskey

Clementine Whiskey Sour

The Clementine Whiskey Sour is a radical take on the classic Whiskey Sour. The Whiskey Sour is simple, delicious, balanced. This cocktail takes a seasonal approach and right now it is citrus season so we are going to add in clementines.

If you are a fan of more spirit-forward cocktails, then keep the clementine to one per drink. If you like more citrusy drinks, then experiment with two or more clementines per drink.
