How to make a Whiskey Sour

Happy June! Summer is basically here and it's time to whip up some new cool cocktails.  The weather's been hot here in Seattle.  We've been way lucky this year with 90 degree weather back in April and in early June.  So there's nothing like sipping a drink while enjoying some sun, whether its a lemonade or even better, something stronger with whiskey.  My husband made us Whiskey Sours last night, a first for both of us.  He handed me mine and I was pleasantly surprised by how refreshing it was.  He added a splash of pineapple juice and grenadine to give the drink a fruity element and to balance the whiskey.  This may be my new favorite drink and hopefully he'll make me another soon.  If not, I've got the recipe here and it looks oh so simple.  Cheers!
