Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here. My most sincere hope is that this little blog is a source of laughter, inspiration and some seriously fabulous food (even if it is vegan!). Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

May I Get You A Drink: Whiskey Sour

This recipe is courtesy of the lovely Ina Garten and is updated with a few twists of my own. I must warn you however,  that this drink is so delicious that it will be impossible to only enjoy one drink!

Whiskey Sour

3/4 cup whiskey 
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
2/3 cup simple syrup
2 freshly squeezed clementines
crushed ice
maraschino cherries

Combine juices, whiskey, and syrup. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and pour in the drink mix to 2/3 full. Shake for 15 seconds and pour over crushed ice in a glass. Add a maraschino cherry for garnish. 

* To make the simple syrup, bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Chill before using.

Mmm, Ina can do no wrong. Whisky sours used to be my drink of choice when we went to Keeneland's spring meet. Yum!
