Jameson Ginger and Lime

Jameson chose to enter the ready-made cocktail scene with a 6% ABV Ginger and Lime in a can. It was released on St. Patrick’s Day and is made of Jameson whiskey (off-course), natural ginger and lime flavors but the beautiful caramel color of the cocktail comes from caramel color. You get four 355ml cans for…

Handy and Schiller Signature Cocktails Barreled Old Fashioned

Saturday night we went out to dinner and sat at the bar. We’re people watchers, and while relaxing at the bar we lost count of all the Old Fashions our bartender made. At $13 a pop you can imagine the money the restaurant made that night. You’re certainly welcome to spend that much cash but,…

Irish Whiskey and Ginger Beer Cocktail 

It’s hot outside so a cold cocktail is the way to go. Now, I do love a nice Moscow Mule but why make that when we have enough whiskey to lubricate a small army. If you love Irish Whiskey and Ginger Beer… Well, you’ll enjoy this cocktail. Ingredients  Lime 2 ounces Irish Whiskey (I used…

Elijah Craig Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup

Now here’s a non-alcoholic Elijah Craig product I came across by chance. This little bottle which cost me just around $4, is simply a syrup to make an Old Fashion with. Unlike ready-made cocktails, you need to have a whiskey to use this one with. The bottle indicates it was specifically to highlight the notes…

This Old Fashion and a Manhattan Cocktail (in…

X by Glenmorangie

If someone were to ask me if they could use my scotches for cocktail mixing I’d really have to think about. Some scotches are simply not made for cocktails which is probably why Glenmorangie partnered with bartenders to create X. It’s a single malt scotch whisky made for cocktail mixing. I mean.. how fabulous is…
