I know what you're all thinking... "'The Preakness' like the horse race?"
Surprisingly enough, this cocktail is not the official cocktail of The Preakness Stakes, that's the Black Eyed Susan. You can get the recipe for it on the Preakness Stakes website, so I won't bother with it here. Though you may hardly ever encounter it, The Preakness is a cocktail worth knowing.
This past Saturday, we attended the North Carolina Wine Festival in Raleigh. One of our featured cocktails was the Apple Cider Whiskey Mule and it was a huge hit, so we wanted to share the recipe with all of you. This cocktail is so versatile that it's perfect for any of your upcoming holiday parties. You can choose your whiskey and it can be served hot or cold.
The Autumn Punch is delicious and refreshing with flavors reminiscent of the world's favorite season. With the leaves changing here in North Carolina, but Mother Nature still being finicky about which side of the thermometer she sides with, this cocktail is sure to please the masses.
With Fall in full swing, we figured a Fall-inspired cocktail was necessary this week. But with it still being warm out here in North Carolina, we thought it needed some refreshing qualities still. Cinnamon and oranges together really seem to combine for the best of both worlds.
When you think of North Carolina in the summertime, blackberries, lemonade and front porch sitting don't stray too far from the mind. So in the spirit of the Carolinas, adding a little bit of whiskey to that summertime feeling is right up our alley. For this cocktail, we wanted to showcase Boundary Street Rye Whiskey's delectable flavors. It is spice-forward with underlying subtleties of butterscotch, vanilla and herbal flavors allowing it to complement, contrast and enhance a myriad of flavors, especially lemon, blackberries and rosemary.
Here in North Carolina, July typically means hot, humid days that call for a refreshing drink and a nice dip in the closest body of water. If you want a refreshing adult beverage, whiskey is rarely the first thing you grab to make a drink. However, you can take our word that this Bourbon Amaretto Punch will be your new favorite warm weather libation.
