Recipe: Whiskey Highball

2oz bourbon (or spirit of your choosing)

4oz club soda

Tom Collins glass (chilled via ice water or left in the freezer for at least one hour)

In a pre-chilled glass, fill to near the top with good, clear cubed ice and not crushed as it’ll melt too quickly.

Chill the bourbon in a mixing glass over ice and strain over the rocks-filled glass.

Then, slowly pour in the club soda, no stirring or mixing needed as the bubbles do all the work.




Recipe: Old Fashioned Whiskey Cocktail

Like any other Old Fashioned, this drink is built in the glass. Add the cognac, simple syrup, and bitters. Then add ice and stir vigorously for 20-30 seconds in a mixing glass. Then pour into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish with either a lemon or orange peel.
