Spring has sprung, and that means warmer weather, which (of course) means the start of cocktail season here at Just Putzing Around the Kitchen. And with pineapple in season right now, and St. Paddy’s Day just around the corner, it seems like kind of the perfect time to introduce y’all to this killer Pineapple Whiskey Sour recipe.
Reasons to try this drink ASAP:
- It’s super super easy to make, and uses the most basic of ingredients;
- The flavors are a perfect balance sour and sweet, with a big punch of pineapple flavor thanks to a secret ingredient;
- It’s Monday; and
- 5 o’clock is happening somewhere.
