These Simple Whiskey Cocktails are some of my favorite mixed drink cocktails! A simple drink doesn’t need the addition of any mixers.
Two more days until the big game. Let’s get ready in shape with a couple of these Whiskey Cocktails!
I was lucky enough to be asked to share these cocktail recipes with you – for happy hour, a random Friday, or a fun way to serve some Whiskey Cocktails for your Super Bowl Party.
As I’m sure you know I’m a big fan of whiskey. Bulleit Frontier Whiskey is one of my favorites, Crown Royal is a classic. I have heard George Dickel Superior No. 12 Whiskey but wasn’t as familiar with it which makes the tasting much more exciting.
So I started my research. I found out that for one, it’s the only 90 proof Tennessee Whiskey. Then moving on to the tasting notes (and the tasting) George Dickel no. 12 has a “rich oak and subtle vanilla lead with a long finish of maple, butter and smoke”.
I sipped on a glass or two – thanks to the nice care package that was sent to me – and I agree with those notes. It was oaky, and smokey but you could still pick up the maple and vanilla flavors as well.
Really good for sipping (I sipped a few in the name of research) but also great for mixing into cocktails like this Dickel Whiskey Sour.
My wife is a big Whiskey Sour fan, no pre-made mixers for her though. She makes it from scratch just like this recipe.
Just the whiskey, lemon juice and orange slices. And you can throw a cherry on top there too…I like to let the cherry soak a little in the whiskey personally. Like the whole jar that I have in my fridge…those are some nice garnishes.
This classic whiskey sour is one of my favorite cocktails!
