Say "Whiskey Sour" and most people picture a drink with an umbrella and/or a dyed-red cherry.

Instead...
Mix:
2 oz Ardbeg Single-Malt Islay Scotch
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 squirt Blue Agave nectar

Stir to combine (or shake)
Garnish with 1/4 frozen lemon instead of ice.

THAT! My friends. Is a true Whiskey Sour.

I just saw that stuff

...the agave stuff, I mean. On the shelf in Trader Joe's. I thought to myself, "what would I use that with?" Now my thought to you is, "What other drinks can you use that with?" :)

I discovered (through mixing for a friend) that even with the dyed cherry, I can make a damn good Manhattan with Irish whiskey (Black Bush) instead of the traditional bourbon.

And speaking of, in my trip to upstate NY last week I found this, along with the rye from the same distillery. Now I just need a Special Occation(R) to open them for.
