Introduction: Perfect Sour Mix
So I'll preface this by saying I enjoy a cocktail on occasion. On the occasion that I want a whiskey sour, or when my wife wants an amaretto sour, I don't always have sour mix on hand. So I decided to make my own.
This is my first Instructable, so bear with me.
Step 1: Ingredients
The basic ingredients are:
Lemon Juice (Fresh or Bottled)
Lime Juice (Fresh or Bottled)
Step 2: Simple Syrup
We'll start with the simple syrup. It's a very useful ingredient in multiple cocktails and like the name implies, extremely simple to make.
You will need 1 cup of water and 1 cup of white sugar. Bring the water to a slow boil in a saucepan and add the sugar. Stir until completely dissolved. Remove from stove and allow to cool.
By the way, this will make about 2 cups of simple syrup.
Step 3: Mix It Up
Take 1 cup of simple syrup, 1 cup of lemon juice, and 1/2 cup of lime juice. Combine in a seal-able container and mix well. This will keep for about 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator, though I would be surprised if it makes it that far. Enjoy!
