There’s a good reason this has been one of the most popular whiskey cocktails for over a 100 years. Made properly, with the right balance of whiskey and sour and just a hint of sweetness, it’s hard to drink just one.
- 3 ounces whiskey
- 1 1/2 ounces lemon juice freshly squeezed
- 2 teaspoons fine sugar
- maraschino cherries
Add the whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar to an ice-filled shaker.
Shake, then strain into two cocktail glasses filled with fresh ice.
Garnish with maraschino cherries.
