Mr and Mrs T Sweet and Sour Mix
This recipe makes a little more of the popular mixer than you'll get in the 34-ounce plastic bottles at the store. So now when you crave a frosty margarita or snappy whiskey sour and don't have any sweet-and-sour mix on hand, you can make a quick batch from scratch. Mix drinks with this stuff as you would the real sweet-and-sour mix in your favorite cocktails and party libations.
