1 fluid ounce simple syrup
2 fluid ounces fresh lemon juice
5 fluid ounces whiskey
3 maraschino cherries for garnish
Combine the simple syrup, lemon juice and whiskey in a shaker. Fill with ice. Cover and shake for about 30 seconds, until the shaker is frosty. Strain into martini glasses and garnish with a maraschino cherry. This can also be served in tumblers full of ice.
