There’s a lot going on today…our project, the NFL playoffs (Sorry, Tebow!), the Golden Globes, and Downton Abbey later tonight. We hardly had any time to come up with a cocktail idea. So we decided to have one of our favorite classic cocktails, the Whiskey Sour. To be honest our version uses Kentucky Whiskey, better known as Bourbon. Instead of sour mix, we use lemon juice and a couple of packs of Splenda to cut on the calories. The result is a delicious drink that is the perfect companion to a cold Sunday afternoon. Enjoy!
Makes two cocktails
- 6 oz of Maker’s Mark
- 4 oz of lemon juice
- 4 single packs of Splenda
- Maraschino cherries for garnish
Fill a shaker with ice, and add the bourbon, lemon juice and Splenda. Shake well until the Splenda dissolves. Pour into glasses filled with ice and garnish with a cherry.
