Author Notes: My friend gave me this recipe but I tweaked her version by adding Italian Maraschino Cherries (Luxardo is a good brand and it makes a world of difference), some of the Maraschino Cherry juice, and switching the whiskey out for bourbon (because it was what I had at the time)... and let me just tell you, it came out to be the most amazing Sour I have had!!! It has nothing to do with New Orleans but I just thought the name was creative. Great for holiday parties! Kristina's Cooking
