World Nutella Day falling on Warehouse Distillery Boozeday Tuesday a coincidence? I think not. This martini is the stuff of dreams for anyone who loves Nutella, bourbon, chocolate and dessert. Trust me, I dreamed about it all night after enjoying a couple last night.
Plus, Valentine's Day is coming up and this would make the perfect nightcap for you and your significant other OR it would be the perfect sweet treat for a Galentine's Bash with your girlfriends.
This cocktail is sure to keep you feeling happy-go-lucky no matter what time of year. Rye whiskey, maraschino cherry liqueur, and two varieties of bitters come together for a libation sure to excite your taste buds. With only four ingredients, this cocktail is not only easy to make, it's also nice on the budget. You can even make a large batch of it to share with friends!
The Sazerac is thought to be one of the (if not the) first American cocktails with origins in pre-Civil War New Orleans. The defining feature of this cocktail is its preparation method, which commonly involves two chilled rocks glasses. The first glass is swirled with a wash of absinthe, while the second is used to combine the remaining ingredients (rye whiskey, bitters, and sugar) over ice.
The Bootlegger Joe is smooth, slightly sweet with a touch of coffee and a splash of orange. It's a great after dinner or anytime sipper. Even if whiskey isn't your thing, this drink could have you changing your mind.
You can use bourbon or rye whiskey for this cocktail depending on your desired flavor. Bourbon will be a little bit more mild and allow the coffee liqueur and orange liqueur to do more talking, while Rye Whiskey is a little bit more spice forward being the foremost ingredient of this cocktail.
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.
The Autumn Punch can be made for a crowd or for one. The choice is yours. It's the perfect pitcher-sized cocktail for a group of football fanatics on Saturdays and/or Sundays; it's even great for family get togethers with holidays coming up...
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.
