Whiskey Sour Punch

My summer vacation has passed all too quickly, and I am now back in Kingston. I was very sad to leave the East Coast once again, but I'm hoping that time here will pass quickly and I will be back again soon.

As much as I am sad to leave my home in Halifax, I am still eager to start the new school year and see what lies ahead for me. But before I get thrown back into the craziness of schoolwork and real life, I figured I would share this drink with you to celebrate the final few days of summer vacation.

I'm not a huge whiskey drinker, in fact, I don't tend to drink hard alcohol very often. When I do drink it, it is usually masked in a fruity cocktail or beverage so that I can't even taste it. I was a bit worried when I made this cocktail because it seems like there is a lot of alcohol in it, but luckily I didn't find it too strong after all!

Hope you can all enjoy the final few days of August and make them last as long as possible!
