mixed drinks with WhiskeyWhiskey would be one of the more main stream and well known spirits out there.  It is seen as a regal drink, something that is smooth and cultured.  We’ve already looked at the all you need to know bout whiskey.  Most aficionado’s of whiskey, tend to think whiskey is a one dimensional drink, they think that you can only mix it with water,  so we wanted to take a closer look at mixed drinks with whiskey.

Whiskey is made in the traditional manner from malted barley.  You can drink a pure malt whiskey with a little water as they do in Scotland, but it would be a shame to use it for cocktails, that would turn an excellent drink into a poor cocktail, because malt whiskies are strong, full bodies, well rounded and don’t mix easily with other flavours.

There are several different ways you can enjoy a whiskey as a mixed drink, lets take a look at the mixed drinks with whiskey

But there are plenty of different cocktails that have whiskey in it.

  • Affinity Cocktail
  • Barbican

Just to name a few.
