WATCH: Michael Ray Mixes Up A Whiskey Sour

In the video for "One That Got Away," the second single from his sophomore album Amos, country singer Michael Ray enjoys a fun night with a woman in Miami Beach – and cocktails are involved.

Ray, who is engaged to country singer Carly Pearce, recently showed iHeartRadio how he mixes up a whiskey sour, a cocktail he said reminds him of the song.

“They mix well because just like a whiskey sour and the start of something where you go, ‘I don’t really know how long this is going to last for but I’m going to ride it out,’ it starts great … but it can get a little sour,” he explained.

“So just ride it out, have fun with it, take a good sip until it gets sour, all the way to the bottom.”
