Smart tips to create whiskey-based cocktails at home
You can create amazing whiskey-based cocktails at home, like JD fashion with whiskey, tequila, bitters, apple syrup and orange zest
There was once a lady who came and sat at the bar. When I greeted her, she told me that she had never tried alcohol, and asked for a suggestion on what she should drink. I suggested wine and, just for fun, I served her club soda in a chilled wine glass and observed her. After two sips, I asked her how the wine tasted and she replied, "It's good". I couldn't stop myself from laughing and revealed that it was club soda. She had a good laugh too, and from that day, she has become a regular patron.
Some oddball ingredients
If you're hosting a bash at home, stock up on ginger, star anise syrup, cucumber (as syrup and puree), basil and cilantro. All the ingredients can be used to make gin cocktails.
Best food pairings
Opt for finger food, like chicken wings, onion rings, potato skins and chicken bites. These can be paired with margaritas. Another good pairing is burgers with beer.
Whiskey cocktails, anyone?
Whiskey has been a favourite drink of the city for long. You can also create amazing whiskey-based cocktails at home, like JD fashion with whiskey, tequila, bitters, apple syrup and orange zest. Another unique cocktail is one with whiskey, triple sec and lemonade.
