FUN WAYS TO ENJOY WHISKEY - Country Wine & Spirits


Whiskey is a very popular drink around the world. Most people will generally just take it as a shot, but whiskey is good to mix with other ingredients to make it taste even yummier. One example is a ‘Manhattan.’ It’s mixed with rye whiskey, bitters, and sweet vermouth.

The other ingredients mellow out the whiskey making you have a nice New York experience on your palate. If you’re in the mood for something really sweet and tropical, try a ‘rosemary peach maple leaf cocktail’; it’s mixed with lemon juice, maple simple syrup, whiskey, muddled rosemary and peach. Your mouth will feel like it’s on a tropical island.

A ‘penicillin’ will definitely make your hair stand up as well as cure any cold you may have had. It’s made with lemon juice, honey, ginger, Laphroaig scotch, and famous Grouse blended scotch. For all the people that like colored and simple drinks, try an ‘Irish Redhead.’ The ingredients are Sprite, lemon, lime juice, grenadine, and Jameson Irish whiskey. The flavors are simple but taste really great together.

If you’re up to trying something unique when it comes to whiskey, try a ‘coke, peanut and whiskey cocktail’. It’s mixed with whiskey, jack Daniels, and peanut orgeat (peanuts, water, orange flower water, sugar, and brandy or vodka). The tastes on your palate will be a little bit on the lovely side. A nice, bubbly drink is a ‘blood orange and bourbon.’ It’s mixed with bourbon, Angostura bitters, blood orange juice, sparkling water, orange slices, and mint. It’s strong and tasty. A lot of people have been getting into the sriracha trend. Now it’s even mixed into drinks like a ‘sriracha hot toddy.’ The ingredients are whiskey, sriracha, honey, lemon, and ginger. Your palate will feel yummy tingles throughout your sips. It’s quite an interesting experience. A very sweet and lovely drink is a ‘mixed berry and fig old fashioned.’ The mix is mixed berries, fig, bitters, sugar, and whiskey. The taste is like an alcoholic tea.
