Kumquat Whiskey Sour

Kumquats, those little orange orbs with a sweet peel and tart flesh, are one of the fruits I look forward to most in the winter. They're great for snacking (just pop them in your mouth until your tongue goes numb from the tartness), or even better, whip up a cocktail.

This recipe for a kumquat whiskey sour by Feizal Valli at the Hot & Hot Fish Club in Birmingham, Alabama is perfect for a little winter pick-me-up. It pairs the bright, zesty flavor of kumquats, fresh lemon, and lime juice with the rich warmth of whiskey. It's perfectly balanced and a little dangerous—it's so delicious, you're going to want more than one.
