Here are some cocktail mixes to try for the happy hour whether you like it sweet, smooth, or fresh.
If you’re looking for a cocktail that’s sweet, how about mixing with cola? It’s simple: Pour a shot, mix in a little cola, stir, and serve with lime wedge. For an even more unique flavor, try vanilla or cherry cola.
Another sweet idea would be to blend a milkshake. Mix vanilla ice cream, milk, ice, and some Ballantine’s Finest in a blender, and work it until it’s smooth. Top the shake with some chocolate syrup.
If you want something smooth, pair a whiskey with beer and berries. Mix a shot of whiskey, lemon juice, honey, and crushed berries in a shaker, then strain and pour into a glass filled with ice and top with light beer.
Who says lemon can only be paired with gin or vodka? Stir together a shot of Ballantine’s Finest with the lemon soda or lemonade—you can even pour in some honey for added flavor.
Fresh and juicy
Have you thought about giving whiskey a minty kick? Try mixing a shot of whiskey with tonic water and top it with a mint sprig or a drop of mint flavoring, you can also top it with a lemon wedge.
Ballantine’s Finest also works great with fruit juice. This one’s simple, too—just stir together a shot of whiskey with apple juice and some soda water in a glass with ice. Other options include orange or grapefruit juice.
