flavored Whiskey Cocktails

This is a variation on an old fashioned, the basis of which is a spirit, sugar, bitters and water. Wigle’s Afterglow Ginger Whiskey is nearly a cocktail in a bottle, flavored with roasted ginger and brown sugar, this product already has the makings of an old fashioned. Feel free to adjust how much additional simple syrup you add, and play around with different bitters. Wigle’s Rosemary Lavender bitters adds a savory note, but Wigle’s Pomander Orange bitters would work well, too.

1.5 oz Wigle Afterglow Ginger Whiskey
½ oz honey simple syrup
3-4 dashes Wigle Organic Rosemary Lavender Bitters

Carefully measure all ingredients, pouring them into a stirring glass. Add a generous scoop of ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over a large cube and garnish with a large orange twist.

A mint julep is a refreshing bourbon cocktail with a storied tradition of being consumed while watching equestrian races. A variation on a whiskey smash, I enjoy the pleasant combination of the refreshing mint leaves and the traditional flavors of a whiskey.

2 oz Wigle Organic Pennsylvania Straight Bourbon Whiskey

6 – 8 mint leaves

Muddle mint leaves and simple syrup in shaker tin to express the flavors of the mint. Add the bourbon (or your Wigle Whiskey of choice) and a generous scoop of ice and shake until well chilled. Strain into a tall collins glass filled with crush iced and garnish with a mint sprig.
