Fred's Bourbon Sour

Well… the diet is still going on (and on and on) and yes… I know it’s only been 2 days, but I’ve phased out a lot of corn syrup and other crap. So, the one vice I’ve allowed myself is a nightly drink. But how can I make my favorite drink (bourbon and diet) without Diet Pepsi? The answer is my OLD favorite drink… the Bourbon Sour.

I’ve modified it slightly…

2 ounces Bourbon
1-2 ounces Lemon Juice
Splash of Lime Juice
Splenda to taste
Shake well, server over ice, and smile.

i’ve had it (actually many of them with fred) and it’s highly recommended…just remeber, the more you drink in one sitting the more “liberal” you will be with the bourbon.
