In the mid 90's, when cocktails were regaining popularity, I though I would try making some Whiskey Sours, which I remembered my Grandfather serving during summer family get-together's. The adults would sit on the large porch in the heat of Michigan summer, look over the Detroit River and drink Whiskey Sours. I never was offered any until one of the last get-together's.
So I went out and bought some Whiskey. When I opened the bottle the smell transported me back to those days on the porch. I remember this," I thought. This is hereditary.
Here's what I've learned about Whiskey.
