Funny story. I like to use fancy square ice cubes when I photograph drinks. Don’t ask me why, but I cringe when I see other bloggers use the ice cubes that are made in your freezer. I wanted to describe their shape, but I’m at a loss for words. Would you describe them as those sort of rounded, sort of rectangle ice cubes? I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. Anyway, I have no idea why I’m so against them, but I’m just overly particular about things that really don’t matter, I guess. Anyway, I always keep two different sizes of perfect ice cubes, in an actual cube shape, ready in silicon trays in the freezer. I went to make this mouth watering apple whiskey sour today and low and behold, my precious ice cubes are gone! Turns out my kids thought it would be fun to use my ice cube trays to make their own homemade version of popsicles. So what do I do? Well, instead of using the ample ice my freezer made, I decided this drink would be stupendous blended. I was right!
I’m not a huge fan of whiskey. My husband can drink it like water, but just the smell of it is hard for me to take. That is, of course, unless it’s made into some kind of whiskey sour. No matter what flavors you love, the base of this drink is always the same – bourbon whiskey, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup. From there, go crazy. Add whatever juice you want and BAM! You have an extra special whiskey sour cocktail. So, go ahead and make this super easy cocktail! You will love it!!!
