Beverages » Whiskey Sour
At risk of a vitamin C deficiency? Drink a "sour" cocktail, like British navy sailors did in the 1700's. Lime juice prevented scurvy amongst sailors and was mixed with hard liquor to preserve the juice. Isaac Sussman of The Independent whips up a "sour" of the rye whiskey persuasion. Simple syrup, citrus juices and a firm shake over ice. That's what the 18th century doctor ordered — so, drink to your health!
