Whiskey Galore

A well-made whiskey cocktail is the best way to relax after a busy day. Citrus is the ideal partner to whiskey, and a hint of woody rosemary completes the picture.

Triple Citrus Whiskey Sour with Rosemary


  • 60ml Irish whiskey
  • 25ml citrus juice (we used a mix of lemon and orange juice) 25ml rosemary simple syrup Strip of lemon or orange peel, to serve

To make the rosemary simple syrup:

  •  1⁄2 cup sugar
  •  1⁄2 cup water
  •  Sprig rosemary


To make the Rosemary Simple Syrup: Heat half a cup each of water and sugar in a small saucepan until sugar melts. Add rosemary, stir and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain and cool. Any extra syrup can be refrigerated for up to a month. To make the Whiskey Sour: Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add whiskey, citrus juice and rosemary simple syrup and shake until the shaker feels very cold. Strain into a glass with ice, garnish with a strip of orange or lemon peel and serve.
