Lemons or limes were added to the drink to prevent scurvy, which was common among sailors, and water and sugar were added for taste. Today, you can buy a premade Whiskey Sour mix. The only problem with these powdered or bottled sour mixes is that they come with a whole lot of sugar. Fortunately, you can swap out the premade drinks and replace them with a delicious sugar-free Whiskey Sour, made all on your own. Whiskey sours are traditionally made with bourbon, but any kind of blended whiskey will work. Ingredients 1 jigger (1.5 ounces or 3 tablespoons) bourbon or whiskey (nutritional analysis uses 80 proof) 1 jigger lemon juice (fresh-squeezed works best) 1 jigger water Artificial sweetener (like stevia) with the equivalent of 3 tablespoons sugar Preparation Put the ingredients in a cocktail shaker half-full of ice. Shake well.Strain into a glass (rocks glass, sour glass, martini glass, or whichever glass you prefer).Traditionally, whiskey sours are garnished with a Maraschino cherry, but those have two grams of carb each. I recommend garnishing with a small lemon wedge or curl of lemon peel.Nutritional Information: Each serving has 3 grams of effective carbohydrates and 106 calories.
