Super Bowl Sunday calls for more than just snacks and beer. Elevate your game day experience with a delightful drink that complements those savory bites – the Whiskey Stone Sour.
While Stone Sours may have a vintage charm, they are timeless in flavor.
Join the ranks of those who have been enjoying this delightful cocktail for the past fifty years, and discover why it’s a classic worth sipping on.
The Stone Sour Tradition
There are Whiskey Sours, and then there are Whiskey Stone Sours. What sets the latter apart is the addition of a stone fruit liqueur, such as Apricot or Peach Brandy.
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
- Fill your Cocktail Shaker halfway with ice.
- Add Whiskey, Apricot Brandy, Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice, Orange Juice, and Simple Syrup.
- Shake vigorously for 20 seconds to create that frothy goodness.
- 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.
Looking to enjoy the game without constant bartending?
Prepare a big pitcher of Whiskey Stone Sours the night before. Keep it chilling in the fridge until it’s game time. Set up an ice cooler, glasses, and a dish with pre-assembled orange and cherry picks.
Let your guests help themselves while you cheer on your team, relishing every sip of your Super Bowl Whiskey Stone Sour.
Cheers to a Happy Super Bowl Sunday, filled with the excitement of the game and the satisfaction of sipping on a classic Whiskey Stone Sour.
