The Forester Cocktail
This drink is a great alternative to a Whiskey Sour. While the Whiskey Sour uses sugar to sweeten the bourbon, the Forester uses a cherry liqueur. Then, a squeeze of lemon adds a final touch of zest. The result is a slightly sweet, easygoing drink that makes bourbon very palatable, even to those who find it overwhelming. So the next time you’re out with friends, try a little something new – try a Forester cocktail.
1 oz bourbon
¾ oz cherry liqueur
1 tsp lemon juice
Shake all ingredients together with ice and strain the mixture into a chilled old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
