The world of whiskey is vast and always expanding. Likewise, the list of great whiskey cocktails continues to grow. There are, however, a few tried and true recipes that are essential to creating a well-rounded whiskey experience.
These drinks showcase the versatility of whiskey. They include some of the most popular whiskey cocktails that enthusiasts have enjoyed for decades (or far longer). It is a perfect list for the beginner to explore everything possible with whiskey.
With its traditional combination of rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters, the Manhattan is an icon in the whiskey world. It is to whiskey what the martini is to gin and the base for countless cocktails. You can make it with bourbon, Canadian whisky, or any other style, and it’s a splendid recipe to use when trying out any new-to-you brand.
The old-fashioned is a simple way to dress up whiskey. Made with bitters, sugar, and an orange slice, it’s an excellent way to experiment with any style of whiskey. Plus, this recipe has served as inspiration for a myriad of modern old-fashioneds, which are equally fascinating.
The whiskey sour is a timeless recipe that’s too good to pass up. You’ll enjoy how the tart lemon plays off some of the sweeter notes in whiskey (backed up by a touch of simple syrup). Adding an egg white to the shaker gives it an intriguing mouthfeel, though you can skip it if you like.
When you top your whiskey sour with club soda, you have the John Collins. It’s brilliantly refreshing and a wonderful happy hour drink. Once you learn this recipe, you can take the formula and pour any liquor—from gin to tequila—to explore the entire collins family of cocktails.
