- 2 ounces Whiskey (Rye or Bourbon)
- 6 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Sugar syrup, to taste*
- 1 maraschino cherry, for garnish
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously until the mixture is nice and foamy. Strain into a chilled highball glass over ice.
*Cook's Note: Sugar syrup is a solution of equal parts sugar and water that is cooked over low heat until clear, then boiled for about 1 minute. Cool and store in a squeeze bottle and use to sweeten drinks, to taste.
