I was talking to someone recently about party cocktail recipes, and they said something which set me thinking. They explained that they weren't a real fan of cocktails because their preferred drink was whisky, and there aren't any good cocktails which include whisky.
Although I didn't believe this was true, at first I admit I was slightly stumped as to what I could recommend. However, having spoken to one or two people who know a thing or two about making great party cocktails I offer here a couple of whisky based party cocktails which I think should provide a great party drink.
Whisky Sour Cocktail Recipe Ingredients • juice of 1/2 lemon • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar • 2 measures whisky • soda water to top up Shake the ingredients with ice and strain into a small tumbler. Add a good dash of soda water and then decorate with a slice of orange and a cocktail cherry.
Earthquake Cocktail Recipe Ingredients • 1 measure gin • 1 measure whisky • 1 measure pernod Shake the ingredients well with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Be warned, this cocktail is not for the fainthearted! Cheers! If you have a great cocktail recipe, whether it's a whisky based cocktail or simply one which you enjoy or which goes down well at your parties, why don't you post it on here for others to enjoy?
It's been said that there are as many different cocktails as there are people who enjoy drinking them, since cocktails really can be tailored to individual taste. If you've experimented with making up your own cocktails, send us your experiences, both your successes and your disasters! Just post a comment below and we'll be happy to try out your suggestions! If you try out either of these whisky based cocktails, let us know how you think, (although after the Earthquake cocktail you may not be doing a lot of thinking for a while!)
