Sour Mash Marmalade, whisky cocktail

Here’s a tribute to the Tennessee sour mash elixir produced by George Dickel, an American company that spells whisky without the “e.” It riffs off a whiskey sour but the hard citrus notes are balanced by using a good quality thick-cut orange marmalade. The mint provides a nice herbal touch.
