Cocktail Recipe Round-Up

Whats Going On | | View Counts (102) | Return

We at Brooks Grain didn’t invent the whiskey cocktail, but as a grain supplier it’d be a failure of due diligence not to vigorously test the end product, no matter how doctored and altered from the state in which we originally sold it.  To that end, we are always on the lookout for a great drink recipe.  The classic cocktail is constantly being reinvented, so it’s no easy task keeping up.  Fortunately, while we are busy moving grain, there are plenty of folks crafting cocktails around the world and sharing their recipes for all to enjoy.

 

Manhattan-Italiano

 

Below are some of our favorite cocktail recipes and recipe round-ups.  You’ll find old standards and off-the-wall newbies that might confuse as much as they entice.  Either way, you’re bound to find something for everyone.  Enjoy!

If you’re looking for classic whiskey cocktails (think Manhattans and Old Fashioneds), then this Esquire round up is for you.

If you’re more interested in experimentation, then I suggest you take a look through the second half of these recipes that the Huffington Post has curated.  Because why not whip up a Dark Chocolate Bourbon Cherry Soda Float?  You know you’ve always wanted to try it.

For a pretty comprehensive list of whiskey and bourbon-based cocktails, you could do a lot worse than this round-up from Saveur Magazine (FYI – “saveur” is pronounced to sound like “cat fur”, so says their editor – hey, the more you know…).

Looking to introduce a slow-learning friend to the world of Whiskey cocktails but don’t know where to begin? Let Georgia Pellegrini guide your way.

Can’t decide between having that afternoon tea or starting into the evening’s libations?  Try the Copper.  With lemon, Irish whisky, spiced tea syrup and apple juice, you’re covering nearly all your afternoon bases.
