A crowd favourite at the Kentucky Derby. True to the cocktail definition, whiskey, sugar and bitters with the addition of fresh mint.
Commonly referred to as the Negroni’s cousin due to the similarities within each drink recipe. The Boulevardier cocktail calls for a bourbon or rye whiskey in place of gin.
A riff on the classic Whiskey Daisy, with the addition of rye whiskey and orgeat. A stunning drink with the addition of the spicy rye.
Barrel aging adds toasted oak and vanilla notes to a cocktail whilst mellowing the alcohol. The ideal aging is 4-6 weeks depending on your barrel size – the smaller the barrel, the more surface area and faster the process takes place.
The sweet, caramel notes of the bourbon whiskey play well with the coffee liqueur and bitter orange flavours. With adequate dilution and balance of flavours this cocktail makes for a perfect night cap.
A pre-prohibition cocktail that has made a come back over recent years. The addition of a splash of red wine differentiates it from a Whiskey Sour and gives it an interesting twist worth trying.
The Old Fashioned is true to the cocktail definition; spirits, bitters, water & sugar. Usually recipes call for a Bourbon or Rye Whiskey but today we’ve used a Hybrid Whiskey – essentially a Bourbon & Scotch blend. Personally I like the sweet spiciness from using a rye whiskey yet this is a good tweak on the classic nonetheless.
The Cobbler has been around since the early 1800s. It’s such a versatile drink and riffs on the sherry cobbler (such as this one) are easily made by incorporating seasonal muddled fruit or syrups. I highly recommend a Pineapple Cobbler!
Citrus, whiskey & mint. All my favourite ingredients rolled into one deliciously refreshing cocktail. No messin’ with muddling. Just keepin’ it simple with this cocktail recipe.
Hands down, the best Amaretto Sour recipe you will come across. Originally from renowned bartender and cocktail blogger Jeffrey Morgenthaler. Seriously, it’s that good.
