Frisco Sour (A.K.A. S.F. Sour)

So a Frisco is a whiskey cocktail made with Benedictine. A Frisco Sour is just what it sounds like. Sour drinkers won't turn up their nose at this cocktail because Benedictine almost completely transforms the drink into something more sweet and herbal. Grenadine changes the color. So to the uninitiated, there appears to be no relationship to your basic sour. But the bones of a sour are all there.
  • 1 1/2 oz. blended whiskey
  • 3/4 oz. Benedictine
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. simple syrup (optional)
  • 1 dash grenadine
  • orange slice
Combine all ingredients except orange slice in a blender or shaker. Mix well and pour into a sour glass. Garnish with the orange slice.
