The POM Whiskey Sour has the same tart-sweet combination that I love in margaritas.  It was super simple to make, which is good because I tend to shy away from cocktails that have 12 steps or require simple syrups or 15 ingredients.  Simple cocktails are the best for parties and celebrations, freeing you up to spend the time with your guests.
