The old fashioned will always be the first on the list of whisky drinks for being a classic whisky cocktail. Originated sometime in the 1800s, it’s a solid example of a true cocktail and a drink you should know both how to make and order.
Chill a cocktail glass. Fill a mixing glass to the top with ice. Measure out the alcohol and sugar, and dash in the bitters. Stir. If a drink is all alcohol and no juice, it’s stirred and not shaken. If there’s juice, go ahead and shake it. Strain it into the chilled cocktail glass over fresh ice. Squeeze the orange peel over the glass and drop the peel into the glass. Add a cherry if you like.
There’s nothing more sophisticated than sipping on a glass of a classic Brown Derby cocktail. Invented at the Vendôme bar in Hollywood in 1930, this smooth blend was named after the iconic chain of restaurants in 20th century Los Angeles. These were widely popular back in the day, and stood out for their distinctive ‘derby hat’ shape.
Are you looking for a way to spice up your dull winter days? Or wanting to escape from the humdrum of life? A cup of Joe with a good old American twist is your savior that is guaranteed to add a zest and vigor to your being.
Rye whiskey is the oldest spirit of the United States. Rye whiskey was conceptualised in 1798, with a distillery being set up in Mount Verno-- and the rest as they say is history, with its popularity continuing to grow today. Surely, bourbon and scotch are the most heard of, but rye whiskey is just as special with its big, bold, dry and spicy flavour profile.
