5 Creative Whiskey Drinks Even Non-Whiskey Drinkers Will Love
Whether they understand the difference between bourbon and whiskey or not, every member of your party—a dinner party, a party party, an evening in with your S.O., whatever—will ask for a second round of these whiskey drinks. From an iced alternative to the classic Irish coffee recipe to riffs on a French 75 and a Tom Collins, these cocktails use whiskey to give drinks you know and love a fresh flavor.
Present one of these creative whiskey drinks with Irish desserts at your next dinner party, or whip up a large batch to pair with the threat of a St. Patrick’s Day pinch on March 17—there won’t be a drop left whenever you serve them. The true beauty of these whiskey drinks is that, though they use Irish whiskey liberally, they’re not limited to St. Patrick’s Day. True whiskey fans will be happy with one of these drinks any time of year, and non-fans may find themselves surprised to enjoy a whiskey cocktail so much. (Some may not even notice the whiskey.)
St. Patrick’s Day is a great excuse to mix up a round of whiskey drinks, but don’t let that limit you—if you can enjoy St. Patrick’s Day snacks all year long (and you can!), you can sip on whiskey in different concoctions, too.
