"This makes a wonderful Whiskey Sour. I highly recommend this one!! I added just a splash of maraschino cherry juice to my drink, due to I didn't have any cherries, or orange. It was WONDERFUL!! It even added a little red to the drink - certainly great to serve guests during this upcoming Holiday Season!!"
