Delicious whiskey sour! I used water sweetened with Splenda instead of the simple syrup and that worked very well. Loved the fresh flavor of this - thanks for sharing!

This makes a great whiskey sour. It tastes best with fresh ingredients, but bottled juices will work if that's what you have on hand. Very flavorful!

I have most of Ina's books and these are the real thing, exactly how a true whiskey sour should taste!
