The results were pretty inspiring. The Appalachian Martini showed how classy our mountains can be. The Mabon married the pawpaw's creamy goodness with the heat of ginger and spiced rum. And now, I'm pleased to share the Pawpaw Whiskey Sour—an Appalachian twist on a classic. This latest drink retains some lemony bite, but the autumn fruit gives it a smooth complexity like I've never tasted.
