Candy Pants

Sometimes an easy to drink Whiskey Sour is just what you need. Sometimes Seagram's 7 Crown is the perfect initiation to whiskey cocktails. That is the case with the Candy Pants. It's used as an insult: someone is "candy pants" if they can't handle something challenging. A cocktail is "candy pants" for those noobs who whine when they can actually taste booze in their drink. This cocktail is a little about both.

Cherry brandy is a cheap way to sweeten a cocktail and cover over boozy flavors. I don't use cheap cherry brandy. I use Heering.
  • 1 1/2 oz. blended whiskey (Seagram's 7 Crown used)
  • 1/2 oz. cherry brandy (Heering used)
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • dash sugar syrup (optional for those really needing a sweet drink)
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
