I prefer a light Canadian whisky like Canadian Mist for this drink which also
includes pineapple juice and dry vermouth. Surprisingly complex for
a three ingredient drink.
The .Jack Evans
From cowboy bars to NASCAR races to trendy restaurants, the
Jack and Coke is one of the most popular cocktails in America.
Simply Jack Daniels and Coca Cola, the combination is classic
Americana in a glass.
Traditionally rye whiskey (sometimes bourbon is used), bitters and
sweet vermouth, this sophisticated cocktail is a great introduction
to the world of whiskey.
.Jameson .Julep Recipe,
Jameson, sugar syrup,Dash of water,mint leaves ,lOml Lillet
Rouge/other red vermouth
Essentially just whiskey, lemon or lime juice and simple syrup,
the tartness of the citrus is a wonderful match to some of the
sweet notes in whiskey.
One shot of Jameson's Irish whiskey, one shot of pickle juice.
Originated by Brooklyn hipsters, the pickleback has become
a recent phenomenon in bars and restaurants throughout the
country. Surprisingly easy to drink.
Choose a light blended whiskey for this cocktail. Simply whiskey,
ginger ale, club soda and a lemon twist, this cocktail is light
Seven and Seven
As ubiquitous as the Jack and Coke, Seagrams 7 Crown whiskey
and 7Up is a great choice if you don't like a strong whiskey flavor in your cocktails.
Imagine a whiskey sour with club soda and you've got the John
Collins. Unsure of whether to order a Tom Collins or a John Collins
at the bar? Specify the liquor and collins and the bartender
will understand you (i.e. whiskey collins).
Whiskey Old Fashioned
Whiskey, bitters, sugar and a splash of water make this complex
cocktail seem much more simple than it is. Experiment with the
type of whiskey used in this to see how flexible this drink can be.
My personal favorite is a rye old fashioned.
