Whiskey isn’t the drink for everyone; some people love it and some can’t stand it. But whiskey is also one of the most revered beverages on the market. Whiskey comes from Ireland or maybe it comes from Scotland and both places claim to be the birthplace of whiskey. In fact, you can spell whiskey “whisky” and both are accepted because the “e” comes from the Irish and the Scottish took out the “e”. No matter which way you spell it, there are easy whiskey drinks that can help you start to enjoy whiskey just as much as the whiskey snobs.
Learn how to enjoy whiskey more with some easy whiskey drinks that just about anyone can make and you may end up with a new favorite happy hour drink.
Whiskey has an interesting past but more importantly, it has an interesting life today. Whiskey is seen like a fine wine in many people’s eyes. The whiskey needs to be aged like wine, is fermented in similar ways to wine and is made differently all over the world. A whiskey from Scotland will taste (and smell) different than a whiskey made in Japan. There are also different ways to drink whiskey. Most whiskey snobs will say that you should drink it straight (some will argue that even ice can ruin the drink). But there are plenty of easy whiskey drinks that can make it easier for the rest of us to enjoy the taste of whiskey. Grab some lowball glasses, cocktail straws, and get shaking!
