Holiday Cocktails for the Family: The Red Nose

From a Bourbon old fashioned to boozy hot chocolate – Wigle’s Strip District Whiskey Distillery is serving holiday cookie flights perfectly paired with sweet dessert cocktails. The snow is falling outside and the shops are packed with people… it’s time to unwind with some easy mixed drinks that will put the spirit back into your holiday season. Impress your family and friends and turn up the holiday cheer with Wigle’s small batch innovative spirits!

Start your night off with a spiked cherry bourbon shot. This whiskey cocktail recipe starts off with Wigle’s Pennsylvania Wapsie Valley Bourbon. Consistently one of our most popular and critically-acclaimed spirits, Pennsylvania Wapsie Valley Bourbon is the result of commitments made by local family farms to bring back an heirloom style of corn known as Wapsie Valley Corn. If you don’t have cherry blossom simple syrup on hand try adding a splash of cherry syrup for a simple alternative. Sweeten with half a teaspoon of almond extract for a quick and easy cocktail!

The Best Maple Old Fashioned: The Wool Boots

If you’re looking for something a little less sweet and a little more boozy – try making this maple old fashioned at home! By using Wigle’s Northern Exposure maple whiskey we bring flavors of roasted malt and maple. Northern Exposure whiskey is distilled from an entirely malt mash and aged for more than 3.5 years in oak barrels. But we didn’t stop there. It spent another 7 months in casks that were previously used to mature locally-produced maple syrup. The result — a whole extra layer of flavor and warmth that will be perfect for a cold night in front of a warm fire. By using this complexly sweet whiskey as the base of the holiday recipe we create a warming mix of maple and coffee flavors making the perfect end to cold wintery night.


how to mix

  1. Add Northern Exposure, brown sugar simple syrup, coffee beans, mole, and pomander orange bitters to a mixing glass
  2. Add ice
  3. Stir for 12 to 15 seconds
  4. Single strain into double rocks glass
  5. Add one large ice cube
  6. Express orange over top, use for garnish
  7. Cheers!

A Boozy Hot Chocolate Is Your New Best Friend: The Kickin’ Cocoa

There is no better sign of the holiday season than having a delicious, warm hot cocoa. There couldn’t possibly be a better way to enjoy such a sweet treat, right? Wrong! By adding Wigle’s seasonally crafted Rudolph whiskey into the mix we can turn classic hot chocolate into holiday cocktail sure to impress all of your friends. To Make Wigle Rudolph whiskey we aged our Straight American Whiskey, for two years in new charred-oak barrels, before placing it into casks previously used to age Great Lakes Brewing Co. Christmas Ale for another nearly two years. This secondary maturation period lends cinnamon, ginger, and honey notes to the spirit, which mingle perfectly with the vanilla and apple notes already prevalent in our easy-going American Whiskey. Simply warm up your favorite hot cocoa and add a splash of Rudolph whiskey to make this delicious cocktail.
