Marmalade Whiskey Sours

One of my very favorite ways to use preserves is in cocktails. They both sweeten and flavor your favorite drinks and bring out a lovely depth of flavor that you wouldn’t otherwise get.

For this recipe I highly recommend using Preserve International’s Meyer Lemon Marmalade (linked below), but if you can’t get a hold of some you can use any marmalade of your choice!

*Note* If you like a little bit of the marmalade zest/pith in your drink (I certainly do) you may need to take the strainer off and pour into the glasses directly.
