Old Orchard Sour

One expects apples not strawberries in an old orchard. Even so, this sour is fizzy and fruity with strawberry liqueur standing in for plain sugar.

I feel like a fizzy drink needs a light tasting whiskey like Seagram's 7 Crown. You don't need your whiskey and soda to taste heavy or overly spicy. Now that I think of it, an Irish whiskey would do equally well. And it is the citrus and strawberry liqueur that really stand out here. My homemade strawberry liqueur is rum-based from Vitae distillery in Charlottesville, VA.
  • 2 oz. blended whiskey (Seagram's 7 Crown used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • 1 tsp. strawberry liqueur (homemade used)
  • club soda
  • berry and citrus garnishes
Combine liquid ingredients except soda in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with soda and stir. Garnish with fruit.
