Wet your Whistle with Whiskey

Whiskey is naturally warming, so they make the perfect base for a winter warmer cocktail. Which one will you try first?

Van-berry Old Fashion

The classic old fashion is getting a festive reboot with classic vanilla and cranberry tones.

For this, you will need

–          3 ounces of whiskey

–          1-ounce cranberry syrup

–          3 drops of Angostura Bitters

This fabulous old fashion is so simple to make, just pour the ingredients over ice in a highball glass, give it a mix and enjoy! If you fancy giving the cocktail a bit more of the “wow” factor try rimming the glass with a lime and roll in demerara sugar.

A touch of Maple

Maple syrup and Cinnamon are two flavours that always work well together, even reading them your mouth begins to water. Now imagine those flavours in a whiskey sour!

For this cocktail, you will need

–          1 ½ ounce of your favourite whiskey

–          1-ounce fresh lemon juice

–          2 to 4 teaspoons of maple syrup – amount based on how much you love the sweet stuff!

In a cocktail shaker, add all of the ingredients and ice, then get to work shaking it up! Pour over fresh ice and enjoy!
