The Gin Sour predates Prohibition, although the drink's popularity soared during the 1940's. It's a great cocktail for minimalists and plays to gin's natural attraction to citrus. One sip and you'll be hooked. Allow us to reel you in & let's get mixin'!
2 parts gin
1 part lemon juice
1 part simple syrup (You can make your own. It's easy and fun! Click here.)

Add the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake well. Very well. Very, very well.
Strain into a rocks glass over ice.
Garnish with cherries and a lemon wheel.
