  1. Whisky swizzle… Had this at a hot summer barbeque a few years ago and it became a favorite!! So refreshing… a little dangerous. 45 ml whisky, 15ml lime juice, 3oz club soda, 3ml superfine sugar, 1 dash Bitters. How to mix: Shake bourbon, lime juice, superfine sugar, and bitter in a shaker with ice and then strain over ice into a tall glass. Add club soda and stir (and serve with the swizzler).

  2. Glascow:

    1 Part Dry Vermouth
    1 Part Scotch Whisky
    3 Dashes Bitters
    3 Dashes Pastis

    Fill a mixing glass with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

    Great giveaway, thanks for the chance.

  6. I’ve pinned my Brown Butter Whisky Old Fashioned (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/119486196339672837/). It’s like a regular old fashioned but takes longer – you make a brown butter whisky by making brown butter and mixing it with your favorite whisky and letting it sit for at least a week in the fridge. Strain out the butter pieces and then use the whisky with your favorite old fashioned recipe!
