2 1⁄2 oz Kinnickinnic Whiskey, Great Lakes Distillery
1 wdg Orange
1 cube Sugar cube
1⁄5 oz Lime juice
2⁄5 oz Lemon juice
2⁄5 oz Simple syrup
1 spl Club soda

Mix sugar cube, bitters and a splash of club in a lowball glass. Drop in an orange wedge. Muddle into a paste. Pour in Whiskey and Luxardo, fill with crushed ice, top off with sour and stir. (Garnish w/ a cherry if you're feeling "sconie")


It's easiest to pre-batch the homemade sour mix: 1 part lime, 2 parts lemon, 2 parts simple


Showcasing the phenomenal flavor profiles of both the Kinnickinnic Whiskey and the Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters, this is a reinvigorated version/combination of the tried and true Old-Fashioned and the Whiskey Sour.

*Although the amount of Rhubarb Bitters may seem high, the Fee Brothers bitters are really more of a flavoring component, not a bittering agent, so they impart a much lighter and true to name flavor

Curated this a bit - instead of a new ingredient called "Sour Mix", I think it's better to use ingredients we already have, albeit in odd amounts. Changed out 1 oz Sour Mix to 2/5 oz simple, 2/5 oz lemon, and 1/5 oz lime.
