Personally I prefer plain ole Whiskey with no bells or whistles but I also know that your relationship with your liquor can be like your relationship with your partner, sometimes you have to shake it up a bit!

So here you go, below are five whiskey sour recipes in honor of National Whiskey Sour Day, try one, try them all!

Dizzy Sour

1.5 oz. Whiskey

Directions? Just add everything to a cocktail shaker or as I like to call it the “Make Do Method”.  The “Make Do Method” means I have an empty, clean jar with a lid, usually a jar that once held hamburger sliced Best Maid pickles, and you throw it all in there, put the top on and get to shaking.
