X’s Lime Whiskey

This drink was a collab with a good friend of mine X (hence it is named after him). Thanks for the idea Buddy!!

 

What I love most about this drink is how the honey and lime flavors are the stars of the show taking the edge off how harsh whiskey can be but at the same time the whiskey makes itself known in the background (like a strong and silent type of man lol). It’s perfectly rustic and elegant. It’s as strong and masculine as it is feminine and delicate it’s perfectly versatile. This drink is just as perfect for a night out with the guys as it is for a cocktail party. I recommend you try this!

Sunny Delight: Cocktail

This week I decided to go through my old recipes and revamp them. I love testing and retesting recipes. And I don’t stop until I am absolutely sure they are perfect!

There is one cocktail recipe from my past which I have had a love-hate relationship with for years. Initially, it was called Wally’s World (Don’t ask why, I don’t even know) and after many variations of the recipe it is now called Sunny Delight!

It’s definitely a bright and very flavorful drink that can be made without alcohol as well. Best served in an old fashioned cocktail glass.

The lemon slice garnish reminds me of a bright & shiny sun. It’s very tropical; it’s like taking a mini vacation.

As summer is fastly approaching, Please give my summertime cocktail “Sunny Delight” a try!

 

There are two variations of this drink depending on if you like a sweeter drink or a less sweet drink. See Below.
