While the “Old Fashioned” is a classic, we think it’s time to retire the Don Draper staple and spice it up with our own, fresh, Summer whisky cocktail. This recipe uses bitters, ginger ale and a simple orange garnish. Serve in a tumbler with plenty of ice.
To make this drink, fill your glass with ice and stir in an everyday whisky or bourbon (we think our very own Bain’s Single Grain works beautifully). Top up with a quality ginger ale and add a couple dashes of bitters. Garnish with an orange slice, put your feet up and enjoy!
Forget the Whisky Sour, this smoky, sharp cocktail will pummel your tastebuds and leave you feeling warm and breathless. It’s the perfect blend of sweet, sour and smoke for any occasion.
Start by slicing the apple into quarters and juicing. Place a large ice-block in a tumbler, add a tot of peated whisky (we recommend a Laphroaig or Ardbeg) and mix in the simple syrup. Pour in the apple juice (there should be a nice layer of foam on the top) and garnish with a couple of mint leaves.
It’s no secret that whisky pairs beautifully with anything sweet. So why not add it to your under-dressed dessert? Swop the custard for a sweet, sherry-matured dram and you’ve officially levelled-up your after-dinner treat. The options are endless.
Add the ice-cream to your bowl of hot pudding. When the ice-cream starts to melt, pour the whisky (we recommend a big splash of Naked Malt, Tamnavulin or GlenDronach 12) over the contents, making sure it soaks into that sponge. Top with strawberries and a sprinkling of almonds.
The Godfather is one of the most popular whisky cocktail recipes. After a delicious meal, enjoy this easy yet elegant whisky and amaretto cocktail. Serve with plenty of ice and an orange peel spiral.
Pour the whisky and amaretto into a mixing glass or jug, then add a large handful of ice. Stir with a long-handled spoon until the outside of the glass feels really cold, then taste to check the dilution. Fill a tumbler or rocks glass halfway with ice and strain the cocktail over it. Drop in either the orange peel strip or create a twist (trim ragged edges from it, wrap around a skewer, and after holding for a few seconds, drop it into the drink).
The Lynchburg Lemonade is named after Lynchburg, Tennessee, the hometown of the Jack Daniel's Distillery. The Lynchburg Lemonade is a whisky-based cocktail that is perfect for summertime. This recipe combines whisky, lemon juice, and triple sec to create a refreshing and delicious drink.
Combine the whisky, triple sec, and lemon juice. Mix well and pour into a glass filled with ice. Top off with lemon-lime soda and garnish with a few lemon slices.
