There are days when you’re completely worn out-- these are just the times you cannot find the right drink that lets you unwind. If an espresso is what wakes you up in the morning and if a classic bourbon permits you to settle down in the evening, then the Espresso Old Fashioned is just what you need. It is a very sophisticated yet amicable coffee drink that features an enticing mix of bourbon and espresso. It is a delicious drink that has been crafted for finer palates. It can be served as a delicious drink right after dinner. If you do not want to use espresso, you can easily substitute it with coffee.
Mix your own Espresso Old Fashioned
All you need to do is combine espresso (or coffee), bourbon, bitters and cinnamon sugar or agave nectar in a cocktail shaker and fill ice in it. Keep shaking it until the outer body of the shaker is frosty, which should take about 30 seconds. Then strain the mix into a lowball glass full of ice. Twist some lemon peel over the cocktail to release the oils, then rub it over the rim of the glass. Drink up before the ice melts!
In the world of whisky cocktails, a Rattlesnake won’t kill you with its bite. Rather, its ‘poison’ will leave you happily inebriated. The Rattlesnake cocktail is an interesting mix of contrasting flavours—whisky, egg white, syrup and lime—perfectly balancing out each other. There are subtle differences in the drink when it is mixed with different whiskies and syrup.
If you replace the brandy in a champagne cocktail with Scotch whisky, you make a Scotch Royale.
When the weather is frightfully cold, and you do not have a fireplace around you, all you need is whiskey, lemon, tea, honey, and warm water. But that doesn’t mean the Hot Toddy is only a winter tipple. It is a mild drink, an absolute nerve soother helping you relax and get a good sleep.
