The ingredients are nothing new, but the term Crownarita was coined at the Wirefly X-Prize Cup in Las Cruces New Mexico by two X-Prize Cup volunteers: Dan Baca and Sean O'Dell. The drink was invented on the spot in the VIP tent when ingredients for a simple whiskey sour where not at hand. Remarkably, the drink was an instant favorite and was being ordered by VIPs for the remainder of the event. Due to the nature of the X-Prize Cup event, many aerospace industry officials and rocket scientists were present. As such, the drink went through brief series of space related names including Laika Sour and Rocket Fuel before settling on the more descriptive name Crownarita.
Combine ingredients and serve over ice in an old fashioned glass. Stir gently and garnish with a single cherry if desired.
