Far from the somewhat spicy, citrusy and wonderfully refreshing summer cocktails, at this time of the year, people want more consistent cocktails. Hence, we recommend some whiskey-based cocktails that you will enjoy the most. Will you dare to try them?
The Manhattan cocktail is famous for its strength. Its preparation is simple, pour two parts of whiskey together with one part of vermouth and add two dashes of bitter with crushed ice. Then, add a few dashes of bitters. Garnish the finished Manhattan with a cherry for an appealing presentation.
We find a higher concentration of whiskey in the Esmeralda cocktail. In this case, equal proportions of Irish whiskey and Italian vermouth are mixed. Then, add a dash of orange or lemon flavouring for a citrus twist. Pour the preparation into a shaker and agitate.
Irish coffee is a Winter-time classic. This coffee is the perfect hot drink to end a delicious meal. To make this cocktail, you need 2 parts of Irish whiskey and 5 to 6 parts of coffee. Simply pour the whiskey into the sweetened coffee and top it off with cream. Alternatively, indulge yourself with some whipped cream to garnish the top.
November Rain is a cocktail made by Javier de las Muelas. This drink takes advantage of whiskey’s smooth and creamy texture. Combine it with Maker’s Mark whiskey, drops of Droplets Tonka Bean, nougat ice cream and black chocolate liqueur to achieve an unctuous winter cocktail. It is easily made by shaking all the ingredients in a Boston shaker for 10 seconds. Garnish the top with coffee beans to impress your friends.
