    All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon in case anyone thinks there isn't whiskey in this. It's an excellent cocktail. Used Cava oranges.

    Funny - I never knew that a whisky Sour didn't actually have Whisky in it.

    LOL, the website won't let me write coctails with a "K"!

    Add 1 tbsp of juice from Maraschino cherries (cocktail cherries) to your cocktail - it is subtle but gorgeous!
