Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Chocolate Covered Cherry Whiskey Sour

June 06, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there!

It's no secret we love bourbon and we love whiskey sours! Here's another sour to add to the collection. We were gifted a bottle of Knob Creek Bourbon Whiskey by one of Frank's cousins (Thank you!). We decided to infuse it with cocoa nibs similar to what we done in the past (see here). If you you are short on time, or do not want to infuse your own whiskey, we recommend purchasing a whiskey like, Ballotin Chocolate Whiskey. In any event, we hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @staynfocusimages
