  • 3/4 cup Single Malt Whiskey
  • 1/2 cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/3 cup Lime Juice
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 4 Maraschino Cherries


  • The first step is to make the simple syrup - you will add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup water in small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved
    Once the sugar is dissolved, transfer to a glass jar and cool completely before using
    (This makes more than you need for this recipe, keep it in an airtight container in the fridge for later use)
  • Add the whiskey, lemon juice, lime juice and 1/4 cup simple syrup to a large glass measuring cup and stir thoroughly.
    (I like mine a little sweeter and my husband likes his a little more sour, so I add a little extra simple syrup to my glass)
    Add 1-2 large ice cubes to each cocktail glass and pour the cocktail over top. Add in a maraschino cherry and enjoy!
