Friendsgiving is almost here and if you’re looking to make a good impression on your turkey feasting friends, we’ve got your back.
While some people will be celebrating November 25th surrounded by aunties, uncles, and play cousins, others might keep things intimate with a few close confidantes, good food, and good drinks. When it comes to the drinks, we’ve compiled a list of whiskey recipes that are sure to impress during your Friendsgiving festivities.
Take a look below.
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
2 oz cognac
1/4 demerara simple syrup
3 dashes of Peychaud’s bitters (or Bitter Truth creole bitters)
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.
Recipe: The Oldest American Cocktail
1 cube sugar
1½ oz. Rye Whiskey or Your Favorite Bourbon
¼ oz. Herbsaint
3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
Recipe: The Manhattan
2 oz rye whiskey (bourbon or Canadian whiskey can also be used)
1 oz sweet vermouth
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
Luxardo cherry for garnish
