You know how we love any excuse to celebrate & the end of a work-week is no exception! You’ve worked hard, kicked some corporate butt, & now it’s time to go out with the gals and celebrate the start to a good weekend. If you are in the mood for something that tastes like warmer weather, sunshine, and being outside, then this Strawberry Whiskey Collins is for you!
We had a couple of days of warmer weather last week & it made me crave all things spring-time, so in order to curb my fix, we whipped up this beauty. She is fruity & lightly sweet but the smooth taste of the whiskey sasses her up a bit. Even if you aren’t typically a whiskey drinker, this cocktail is definitely worth a try.
3/4 oz of strawberry puree
1 1/4 oz fresh lemon juice
Dash of simple syrup
2 oz Michter’s American Whiskey
1. In a blender or food processor, grab a handful of strawberries (fresh or frozen) and blend until pureed.
2. Combine lemon juice, dash of simple syrup, whiskey, & ice, and shake until cold.
3. Pour a quarter inch of puree into the bottom of a rocks glass, add in the whiskey mixture, & top off with soda water.
4. Serve, sip, repeat!
So, what do you think? Delicious sounding right?! Here is a little insider tip, there are lots of whiskeys out there & if you are just getting into it (like myself), the options are fantastically overwhelming. Luckily, we did a little taste testing for you (more on that later) & found a phenomenal whiskey that will delight even the most seasoned whiskey drinker – Michter’s!
We are in love. It’s smooth, not to overwhelming, and is crazy affordable. While I haven’t graduated to the level of just straight chilling, sipping on some whiskey at the end of a day, I could definitely work up to it with this brand. If you are in the market for a new whiskey or exploring new cocktail combinations, give this a try – I promise, you’ll love it!
