My favorite cocktail is a martini, and yet, I really liked this beverage! I admit it took about 3 sips to win me over and I would definitely make this again. I used Smirnoff and Old Crow Kentucky Bourbon whiskey and I halved the sweet and sour mix. Very refreshing! Thanks, NurseJaney! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap #74.
I liked this drink but DH didn't cause he found it too sweet. So next time I'll use less sweet and sour. I used Jack Daniels for the bourbon. I think it was great. Thanks NurseJaney :) Made for the Australian recipe swap for July 2011
