If you are in the mood for something that tastes like warmer weather, sunshine, and being outside, then this Strawberry Whiskey Collins is for you! Even if you aren’t typically a whiskey drinker, this cocktail is definitely worth a try.
In a blender or food processor, grab a handful of strawberries (fresh or frozen) and blend until pureed.
Combine lemon juice, dash of simple syrup, whiskey, & ice, and shake until cold.
Pour a quarter inch of puree into the bottom of a rocks glass, add in the whiskey mixture, & top off with soda water.
Serve, sip, repeat!
Peach Basil Gin & Tonic
There is something so crisp and delicious about a classic Gin & Tonic and this little twist takes this classic to an entirely new level. It’s like the best flavors of summer decided to get together and have a pool party…but the pool is gin…and it’s amazing.
This is a twist on a classic cocktail, the Sidecar. Cognac is replaced with a more rustic Armagnac, and Cointreau is replaced with Solerno blood orange liqueur. The resulting combination is tart and citrusy, yet balanced and rich, set off with a cinnamon-sugar rim.
The Rojo Whiskey Sour is an enhanced whiskey sour. Sours emerged as staple cocktails during prohibition when whiskey became the (defacto?) alcohol of choice to be smuggled into major cities. The red wine helps to balance the sour and cut the flavor of alcohol and quickly became a staple metropolitan cocktail
