The Stone Sour Tradition

This unique twist introduces a burst of flavor, making it a tastier alternative to the traditional sour.

Get ready to shake up a storm and create a drink that stands out at your Super Bowl gathering.

Crafting the Whiskey Stone Sour


  • 1 1/2 oz Whiskey
  • 1/2 oz Apricot Brandy
  • 3/4 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 TB Simple Syrup

Simple Syrup Tip:

If you don’t have pre-made Simple Syrup, it’s a breeze to prepare.

Boil equal parts of sugar and water, let it simmer for 10 minutes until it achieves a syrupy consistency, and voila! You can store it in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

Mixing It Up

  1. Fill your Cocktail Shaker halfway with ice.
  2. Add Whiskey, Apricot Brandy, Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice, Orange Juice, and Simple Syrup.
  3. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds to create that frothy goodness.
  4. Strain the concoction into a highball glass over a large ice cube.

Garnishing the Game Day Elixir

No cocktail is complete without the finishing touches. Garnish your Whiskey Stone Sour with an Orange Wheel and a Cherry, adding a visual appeal that matches its flavorful profile.
