"The Hiram Walker Sour Ball. For kids over 21.

Didn't you once love the zing of a sour ball? Remember the citrus snap that made you pucker your lips? Remember the cool taste on your tongue?

Now that you've grown up, you're ready to discover the delights of the Hiram Walker Sour Ball.

It's a quick treat to mix. (But remember to take it easy. This Sour Ball's not child's play.)

Just pack your glass with lots of ice, pour in 1 1/2 ounces of Hiram Walker Apricot Flavored Brandy, top it off with the juices of half a lemon and half an orange and stir.

Now relax and savor that Sour Ball. It's tart to start, tart to finish.

You'll be surprised how something sour can sweeten up your day."
