My Favorite Whiskey Drink

I just graduated from college this spring.  Being a recent college grad, I have a lot of drink recipes that I made up using only the supplies on hand.  My boyfriend really likes whiskey so I have tried to make a couple of drinks using this alcohol instead of my usual favorites of vodka, tequila, and rum.  This recipe I just created last week and is my favorite by a landslide.  So if you are a whiskey drinker or have a boyfriend that is, and all you really want is a vodka cranberry then this drink is for you.  I’ve been calling it the Sour Whiskerberry Ale, but that might not catch on.

There are a few options you can do to make this drink lower in calories.  I used Slim Bob and Skinny Chick brand sweet and sour mix.  I think that it’s tastes better than other mixes and it has fewer calories.  I also used light cranberry juice.  I didn’t have it on hand, but diet ginger ale would also be a good substitute.  These three things combined should bring the calorie count down significantly.


Printable Version


1 part whiskey

1/2 part sweet and sour (optional, but I like it better with it)

2 parts cranberry juice


ginger ale

Time: 5 minutes


Use a rocks glass.  Add the whiskey, sweet and sour, and cranberry juice.   Stir together.  Add the ice.  Fill the glass the rest of the way with ginger ale.  Enjoy!

These nutrition facts assume that 1 part = 1 fl oz and that nothing used is diet or light.
