The only thing I am asked to share lately is a variety of easy whiskey cocktails at home.
Now, I ultimately believe that you can only enjoy a good whiskey or scotch in its purest form. I love it on the rocks. But as a bartender, I have realized that whiskey is probably the most effortless spirit to work with because there are very few flavours you can experiment with when it comes to whiskey.
For me, easy whiskey cocktails at home always draw a picture of a sour. Lemon juice balances every fancy flavour you might want to experiment with and brings out the best of your whiskey/scotch/bourbon.
By the way, I don’t recommend making cocktails with scotch. No. Scotch is always sacred.
Anyhow, I will be sharing some easy whiskey cocktails – mostly sours and some smash too. This one is my favourite easy whiskey cocktail at home.
But before that, here is a brief history of this easy whiskey cocktail!
Easy Whiskey Cocktails: Whiskey Sour History
Whiskey sour dates back to the 19th century when sailors would have plenty of lime and lemon due to the danger of scurvy and, of course, barrels of whiskeys. Mixing these two with an experimental amount of water and sugar resulted in the modern-day whiskey sour.
Mango Whiskey Sour
Adding mango to any drink gives a very refreshing summer twist to it. In this sour, I am using fresh mango juice with zero pulp and lemon juice. I am not using sugar because mango already has fruit sugars.
You can muddle some mint to give a refreshing taste to the drink.
Drink Respnisbly. Mix drinks, NOT drinking and driving!
