Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe.
This week: The WhiskeyBerry Sour at SideBar
Thanks to weekly events and the support of Downtown night owls, SideBar's become one of the hottest nighttime destinations in town. Even the biggest Old Town Scottsdale frequenter knows about the spot, or, at the very least, knows a friend of a friend who's been there ... once or twice.
Regardless of its increasing local popularity, the place maintains its urban cool, and the WhiskeyBerry Sour is a local fave. Think your basic whiskey sour with a handful of muddled blueberries and a ton of SideBar charm.
(recipe after the jump.)
1 1/2 oz. Jameson
1 oz. house made sweet 'n sour
1 oz. club soda
15 fresh blueberries
In a rocks glass, muddle together blueberries and Jameson. Add ice, sweet and sour and club soda. Forget the straw. Fingers are much more effective for your post-liquid, Jameson infused blueberry eating enjoyment.
