I’ve been living in south Jersey for almost 12 years at this point, I can’t believe I’ve been out of Philly for so long. It’s like a city identity crisis all the time in my mind. I love them both. BUT south Jersey has one thing that Philly does not and that’s a new spin on a whiskey sour that I became obsessed with a few years back at a local dive bar. I’ve tried to recreate it ever since and I think I finally got it. Of course, that means I need to share it with you all. It’s the perfect cocktail to make for your Fathers Day get together!
This is super delicious. Sweet + Sour + Refreshing. Each ingredients adds a little oomph that just makes so full of yum. When I give you the secret ingredient that gives this baby it’s south Jersey name, I promise when you add it you will be blown away. This cocktail may even beat out the Blue Lagoon for my favorite!
Looking to jump into summer? And cheers to dad? Try this South Jersey take on the classic Whiskey Sour. As a little bit of a whiskey girl, I was super excited to give Templton Rye a try. It’s The Good Stuff after all.
When Prohibition outlawed the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages in 1920, many enterprising residents of a small town in Iowa chose to become outlaws – producing a high caliber and much sought-after whiskey known as Templeton Rye, or “The Good Stuff” to those in the know. Based on the original Prohibition era recipe and aged in charred new oak barrels, Templeton Rye provides a smooth finish and a clean getaway.
