It's finally beginning to feel like Fall here in the Carolinas. And in our neck of the woods, Fall and apples go hand in hand. So we decided to up the ante and throw apple butter AND whiskey into the mix. "Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit!" What? You were thinking it too! This drink is easy to make and tastes so good, it could make you slap your mama. (Word to the wise: maybe don't slap your mama and just make another cocktail instead)
When International Coffee Day and Boozeday Tuesday fall on the same day, there's only one option: Spiked Maple Coffee. Not only is this our simplest recipe yet. It's also perfect for the coming colder weather.
Add a shot (or two) of Boundary Street Maple to your favorite cup of coffee. Then add the rest of your favorite additions or leave it black. Trust us, you won't regret it.
Pomegranate Juice + Craft Whiskey + Lemonade... What's there not to like about that?!
This cocktail is not only refreshing and tasty, it's delicious too! We made this for Beer, Bourbon and BBQ in Cary, NC last weekend and it was such a hit that we ran out halfway through the festival, so we knew we had to share it with all of you.
The best part? It goes with all three of our whiskeys!
The New York Sour is basically a classic whiskey sour with a red wine float.
I know what you're thinking. Red wine float? With whiskey and lemon juice? And maple syrup? No thank you. But I promise it just amplifies this already delicious cocktail. Let me break it down for you:
The New York sour is amazingly balanced with sweetness from the Maple Whiskey and maple syrup. The lemon juice adds tartness in contrast. The whiskey adds warmth while the red wine adds a depth of flavor that elevates the cocktail.
We have made this cocktail for a couple of different events here recently and it has been a huge hit, so we wanted to share it with all of you. Our Spiked Berry Lemonade is incredibly easy to make on a small scale or for your next backyard BBQ. You can also mix up the lemonade without the booze, so you and your guests can choose your own spirit to enjoy (plus, it's safe for the kiddos to enjoy this way too).
Whiskey sours are one of the best ways to enjoy your favorite whiskey. But the same old sour can get a bit boring. That's where Horball's Drinking Vinegarscome in! This North Carolina company makes delicious shrubs, or drinking vinegars, in a variety of flavors that are perfect to spice up your favorite cocktails. We chose their Blueberry Lemon flavor for our whiskey sour and boy, was it the right choice. Don't believe us?! Just try one for yourself with this easy recipe:
So we're a day late, but not a drink short this week. And this one is delicious. We made this Lavender Whiskey Lemonade for Find Your Spirit Festival this past weekend in Asheville and it was such a hit, we just had to share it with everyone this week for Boozeday Tuesday.
Lavender is known for its relaxing properties and who doesn't love to relax on a porch with some lemonade on nice Carolina spring or summer day? Only a crazy person would say that doesn't sound appealing. So how do you get refreshed and relaxed with a Lavender Whiskey Lemonade?
It's finally Spring thyme! See what I did there? We keep hearing that Maple is a fall flavor, but this cocktail throws that opinion right into the trash. And who doesn't love a classically made whiskey sour? Only the crazies, that's who. So without further ado, here's how you make the Maple Thyme Sour...
