Making a Rum Sour

     Sours are an old favorite classic cocktail.  Whiskey is the usual spirit found in sours, but rum makes a wonderful one as well.  Here is an idea for a really nice rum sour.  Yolo 10 year old rum is a great rum for this cocktail, it has strong notes of whiskey, but so much more depth.  It makes a great mixer for any whiskey based cocktail as well.
