    Way too sweet for my hubby and me. Tried it without cherry juice and it got a little better. But still Sweet. Ended up Adding more Lemon juice. Still Found best and easiest whiskey sour recipe that is 40 Years old-put in blender: 1 can frozen undiluted lemonade, fill the empty can with 1 can water, then fill Can again with 1 can KY bourbon. Blend until dissolved. Pour over ice and add cherry. Easy and delicious.

    It's a great drink but I'll have to change a few ingredients next time. DH found it too sweet. So maybe I would use less marashino cherry juice. But I liked it. It was very refreshing. Thanks Chef PotPie :) Made for PAC Spring 2012

    Thank you for reminding me how great a whisky sour can taste. It's been way to long. This potent drink was perfect. Sweet, sour tangy. I loved it. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Seaside Brasserie.

    This recipe is great. I use the same ingredients, but I add a few drops of bitters. Shake well and pour over ice. perfect!
