St. Nick Sour

Today is St. Nicholas Day and all around the world little children will celebrate the festival of the real-life St. Nick who brought gifts to well behaved children with small toys and treats hidden in their shoes and stockings. Grown-ups can join in on the fun as well with this quick and easy holiday spin on a traditional whiskey sour in honor of jolly old Sinterklaas!
