The whiskey sour is a versatile cocktail that is fun to tweek. Here is something I dreamed up one day after work.
- 2 oz Rittenhouse 100 rye whiskey (Bourbon would work too)
- 1/2 oz Lemon juice
- 1/4 – 1/2 oz Ginger sryup (I do 1/4 oz since I make my syrup with a turbinado sugar that is very sweet)
- 2 dashes Bittermans xocolatl mole bitters
- Float of Smith & Cross rum
Shake ingredient and strain over ice in an old fashioned glass. Float some Smith & Cross rum on top. Orange peel for garnish.
