I was asked to create a recipe using all American made spirits for the Made in America Project - a website that features American craftsmen and women making beautiful things right here in the U S of A. I was honored to be asked to participate and I'm really excited to share the American West Sour, a bright, summery whiskey cocktail made with one of my favorite whiskey brands as of late.
It's a variation on a New York Sour, but is made with a dry Napa Valley rosé (or any American rosé) instead of red wine. I used Tin Cup whiskey made in the mighty state of Colorado - a delicious and crisp whiskey made with that pure Colorado mountain water. This cocktail reminds me of so many of my days spent growing up in Colorado - open fields, epic sunsets, crisp mountain air, and those magical warm summer nights filled with a symphony of crickets and laughter.
I hope you enjoy it.
