Whiskey Sour
3 oz.bourbon
1/2 sliceorange, fresh
1 oz.lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
1 tbl.simple (sugar) syrup
Combine whiskey, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a mixing glass with ice. Shake well. Pour into a highball glass with ice. Squeeze a slice of orange into the drink and stir. Throw in the orange slice.
The key to this drink is the smidgen of fresh-squeezed orange added at the end - it balances the drink very nicely. This may be Nancy Boles favorite drink.
