National Whiskey Sour Day

If you were to rank whiskey on a coolness scale from one to ten, whiskey would be too cool to even be ranked! Yes, the phrase ‘all the cool kids are doing it’ rings true when talking about a liquor as popular and sophisticated as whiskey. So it is fitting that whiskey has its own day to celebrate the classic and ever-popular Whiskey Sour cocktail. In honor of National Whiskey Sour Day, we’ve compiled a few delicious whiskey cocktail concoctions that put a spin on the classic variation. Cheers!
