We came across this whiskey cocktail and immediately thought about sharing it with you guys. The best part about it is its uniqueness. But what is it that makes it unique? It is the exotic combination of whiskey and crème de cassis that does.
Well, yes, Cassis as we all know is a quaint town, situated east of Marseille, in southern France. It is a hugely popular tourist destination, however, crème de cassis is not something that was created and conceived there. It is Burgundy, another French region that gave birth to cassis, the liqueur. Both Burgundy and crème de cassis owe their etymologies to blackcurrants.
Crème de cassis is a sweet and dark red liqueur that’s made from blackcurrants. It is primarily used in making cocktails. Interestingly, it is also served as a frappe post dinner.
So this coming weekend, crank it up a notch with a whiskey Cassis!
Take an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Combine all the ingredients. Shake it well for a good 10 seconds or so. Strain the liquid into a cocktail glass.
Chug and make multiple servings of the whiskey cassis!
If you fancy a cocktail with a strong bitter punch, meet the famed Sherman cocktail that is sure to please your palate. A staple at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City during the 1930’s, Sherman is a twist on the classic Manhattan with the addition of absinthe and two types of bitters – angostura and orange.
Recreating the days gone by has always been mankind’s way of looking into a time travelling mirror. With old-fashioned furniture and homes in vogue, the old world really has a way of appealing to the senses. There is something about old-fashioned cocktails that comforts the soul and relaxes the mind.
