(Blended) Whiskey Cocktail

This cocktail recipe specifically calls for blended whiskey. Unlike the Rye Whiskey Cocktail and the Bourbon Whiskey Cocktail of the same proportion and ingredients, a blended whiskey makes this drink a little smoother and more reliant on other ingredients to keep it interesting. I used a demerara sugar syrup which really added a sweet richness that blended whiskey often lacks. Angostura bitters, even a single dash, were totally appreciated here.
  • 3 oz. blended whiskey (Black Velvet Special Reserve used)
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup (demerara used)
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain in to a chilled cocktail glass.
