Way back when, the drinking age in the US was 18. And in my youth, I preferred two cocktails above all others: a Midori Sour, and a Whiskey Sour.

So, I thought I’d share an old Whiskey Sour recipe.

A few notes: the raw egg can gross some people out. I get that. It actually “makes” this drink, but it is still pretty darned good even without the raw egg.

Don’t use a sour mix. Ick. Unnecessary since making your own “sour” is so easy to do.

The Whiskey Sour is a very old, classic drink. The Whiskey Sour dates back to the 1870s. It is a sweet drink with a bit of a sharp tang. Totally delicious!

Raspberry Mint Julep Recipe

Raspberry Mint Julep Recipe. No matter what the season, this update on the classic mint julep recipe is infused with raspberries making for a refreshing, delicious  Raspberry Mint Julep Recipe.




The mint julep is the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby, and what could be better to make that with than Maker’s Mark Kentucky bourbon? Maker’s Mark contacted me to ask if I was interested in Kentucky Derby Cocktails made with Maker’s Mark. Well, you know me! I can’t say no to a good bourbon recipe, so I said yes.

I was intrigued by the Strawberry Mint Julep Recipe that Maker’s Mark they sent to me, but I didn’t have strawberries in the house, and the amount of Maker’s Mark used in their cocktail recipe seemed a little too liberal for me. I do believe that sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, so tempered the Maker’s Mark Bourbon in my version.

This is the original Maker’s Mark Strawberry Mint Recipe sent to me:

Maker’s Mark Strawberry Julep

2 parts Maker’s Mark Bourbon
2 fresh strawberries
1 part simple syrup
6 mint leaves
1 part fresh lemon juice

Muddle strawberries, mint leaves and simple syrup in mixing glass.
Add Maker’s Mark and lemon juice and fill with ice.
Shake well and double strain into a martini glass.

And this is what I ended up making:
