Whiskey Mixed Drink

I like sour drinks and I love whiskey. Tinkering with items I had on hand, I came up with this combination.

2 oz Whiskey blend
4 oz Grapefuit Juice
2 oz Lemon Juice
1 oz Grenadine Syrup

In mason jar add some ice cubes and the whiskey, juices & syrup. Shake well to blend. Pour into a salted rim glass. Then add a touch of Sprite to add a little fizz. I love it. Hope someone out there does too.

So, what's a whiskey blend?

It sounds delicious. Do you think bourbon would work alright?

An example would be a Scotch Whiskey that coukld have as many as 50 different whiskies blended together. These are usually inferior whiskies and the cost can be much less than a Single malt. Bourbon wouldwork well in the above drink.

Bang bang thanks for the clarification I usually use Jack Daniels Whiskey. I tried Capt. Morgan but found the sweetness to over power the sour.
