In case you’ve been too busy ordering vodka and tequila drinks to notice, whiskey is making a big comeback. And while some still prefer to drink it neat or on the rocks, bartenders are using this timeless spirit in a variety of creative cocktails.
But creativity aside, there’s nothing like the classics as a way to truly appreciate whiskey. So, along with our friends at Liquor.com, we chose three timeless cocktails that showcase whiskey’s personality: The Manhattan, the Rob Roy and the Whiskey Sour. And because knowing these standards is a must, these videos will show you how to mix them like a pro for your next party.
One of the most popular whiskey cocktails, it’s traditionally made with rye.This updated version adds Grand Marnier for a richer experience.
Named for the Scottish folk hero, Robert Roy McGregor, the Rob Roy is essentially a Manhattan made with Scotch whiskey instead of rye.
A simple, three ingredient cocktail made with bourbon, lemon juice and simple syrup, this old-school favorite is making a comeback.
