Although it scares the majority of my friends, I love any excuse to get my martini glasses out. They have the ability to make any ordinary night special. Hayley and I wanted to find a festive cocktail to share by the fire before we sat down for dinner. A Whiskey Sour seemed like the perfect drink for a cold night. And, making the mix from fresh lemons and limes really make a difference. If you choose to make these – take the extra time to make them right. A juicer comes in handy for this….
