Orange Creek Sour

Happy #nationalwhiskeysourday my dears!!! So excited to share with you today a twist on this classic drink. Giving this citrus based cocktail a sweet spin, head mixologist Adam Chick of Four Seasons Silicon Valley created the Orange Creek Sour and let me tell you it was a delicious delight! 

Since I started working on my Mixology 101 series on the blog something that has definitely surprised me has been sudden love affair with Whiskey. Honestly nothing beats a good classic Sweet Old Fashioned in my book, but the Orange Creek Sour definitely gives it a run for its money. Subtly sweet, its burnt orange twang perfectly compliments the Whiskey's oak layers, making it a great cocktail to make as you transition from summer to fall flavors. I know I will be doing just so, biding adieu to the sunny season this coming Labor Day weekend with an Orange Creek Sour!
