Shaken & Stirred! How To Step Up Your Cocktail Game At Home

By / Wine + Drinks / October 2nd, 2019 / 18

Bump the beer off the shelf and put away the wine; this season, shake up your entertaining and create cocktails that your guests will remember.

Whether it’s a bold, savoury bourbon or a smooth, stream-filtered whiskey from Tennessee, these American spirits are becoming a go-to ingredient for the hottest drinks behind the bar and at home. Although it’s common to sip them neat or on the rocks, think beyond the glass and get creative!

Putting your host hat on? Offer your guests a classic like a Manhattan, Old Fashioned or a Whiskey Sour. Looking to take it a step further? Grab a Collins glass and mix up this simple yet sophisticated bourbon cocktail that’s both tasty and easy on the eyes.
