SWEET & SOUR
START SIMPLE: many of the cocktails in this book and others require the addition of simple syrup to make the drink pop with yumm! It's incredibly easy to make and you can store it in your refrigerator for several days for future use (a great reason to keep old mason jars handy). To make simple syrup, place one cup of sugar and one cup of water in a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. When the sugar dissolves completely, let cool and add to the drink.
A TOTALLY SWEET WHISKEY SOUR:
1 1/2 ounces of Jameson Irish Whiskey
1 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup
1 1/4 ounces pureed frozen peaches
peach to garnish
Shake the above ingredients in a cocktail shaker and garnish with peach. Cheers!!
