I'd rather be someone's whiskey than everyone's cup of tea.


“I would rather be someone’s whiskey than everyone’s cup of tea. ” 

Step up your bar game and invite your date over for a cozy cocktail date. Here’s two impressive whiskey cocktails to whip up at home this weekend.

The Blinker


2 oz Canadian Club 100% Rye
1 oz pink grapefruit
.5 oz Chambord
1 tsp simple syrup
garnished with raspberries


Combine Canadian Club 100% Rye, pink grapefruit,  Chambord and simple syrup into a mixing glass and stir. Convert to a martini shaker with ice. Shake shake shake it like a polaroid picture. Pour into a coup glass or a martini glass and garnish with three fresh raspberries.

The Sour

Don’t let the egg sway you – the sour is a classic drink that will have your date swooning for more. Also, eggs are packed with protein – so it’s kind of like going to the gym.


2 oz Canadian Club 100% Rye
1 oz lemon juice
1 egg white
.75 simple syrup
2 dash bitters


In a shaker, combine the Canadian Club 100% Rye, lemon juice, simple syrup and bitters. Carefully cracking one egg and using only the egg white, add to the shaker on ice. Shake it up! You’ll need a strainer over your glass to create that extra frothy goodness. Finish with a few drops of bitters over the top layer. You fancy devil you.
