Spiced Grapefruit Whiskey Sour

DIRECTIONS:

Take your favorite rocks glasses, add ice, and place 1–2 lemon slices.
If planning to garnish with cloves, press 3-4 cloves into peel of a lemon before placing in glass.
Pour whiskey, followed by grapefruit soda to desired level
If garnishing with cinnamon, add 1 stick cinnamon to finished drink.

SPICED WHISKEY PREP:

*If using cinnamon or cloves to flavor your whiskey, wrap 8–10 cinnamon sticks or cloves in cheesecloth and steep in entire bottle of whiskey, along with 1/3 cup raw sugar. Stir the sugar to make sure it dissolves, and then steep for 8 hours to 8 days to flavor as desired.
