I’ve gotta be honest with you guys, I usually don’t like whiskey drinks. I know, shock and awe. I typically prefer my drinks on the girly side, full of dessert vibes, with as little alcohol taste as possible! You know, like a tiramisu martini or an Irish Cream Pie Cocktail.

BUT, this Broiled Cherry Whiskey Sour is different. This easy whiskey cocktail has the best of both worlds; enough fruit flavor to keep me happy and enough strength to garner respect from Pat. Win win! That’s why I’m calling it the BEST EVER Broiled Cherry Whiskey Sour.

This cherry whiskey sour cocktail is pretty much made from scratch, full of flavor, and just girly enough to make me happy. Oh, and it’s pretty. Cheers!

When I think of St. Patrick’s Day, I think of the Irish. When I think of the Irish, I think of Irish Whiskey! And when I think of Irish Whiskey, these Broiled Cherry Whiskey Sours are virtually all I can think of! The perfect cocktail to give cheers to your Irish heritage this St. Patrick’s Day! Easy to make and oh, so delicious.

Don’t let the “from scratch” add-on scare you. You can use store-bought sour mix if you must, but this homemade sour mix only uses a couple of ingredients and is super simple to throw together. I actually already had all of the ingredients on hand. So save yourself a trip to the store and make the sour yourself. You’ll be glad you did!
