“I will never have another whisky”, said no one ever. It’s true. We can’t ever get enough of Whisky. It’s growing varieties, brands and the multiplying cocktail recipes are always a fun topic to talk about it.
In Gaelic, Whisky translates to ‘water of life’! Who can say no to that! If you haven’t made your debutant to the world of whisky drinkers, here are a few suggestions from a long list of the ‘world’s best whisky cocktails’. What’s even better is that you they are all DIY. Here are our top 5 favourite whisky cocktails that you must try.
- Whisky Sour
It is essentially made up of lemon or lime juice and sugar syrup plus lots of ice, along with blended whisky. It’s usually garnished with a slice of lemon and a maraschino cherry.
This cocktail is simple but classic. All you need are bitters, sugar and a splash of water. We recommend bourbon or rye whisky, both work well. However, you can experiment with different types of whiskys.
3. The Pickleback
This includes a shot of Irish whisky and some pickle. It originated among Brooklyn hipsters and has become a recent phenomenon in bars and restaurants throughout the country.
4. Irish Coffee
Irish coffee simply needs coffee, Irish whisky, sugar and a touch of whipped cream. It’s the perfect combination of coffee and whisky. It’s apt for cold winter nights.
5. Rusty Nail
This cocktail was a nearly forgotten classic. It’s one of the easiest cocktails to make. You only need some scotch whisky, Drambuie and a twist of lemon peel.
So, what are you waiting for? Go get your glass of whisky right away! Cheers!
