Whisky Cocktails Score High
July 08, 2010 | East End Eats
We’re sorry to break it to you, but your chances of making the PGA tour anytime soon are slim. But never fear: Your stroke might need some work, but your cocktail-making can be well above par. Become a Jack Nicklaus of mix-masters by perfecting A Hole in One, which uses Johnnie Walker Red Label (unrivaled as a mixer, we’re told)]. Or try the more-than-appropriately named Peachampton, made with ultrasmooth Johnnie Walker Black Label. Enjoy after a day on the links, at the beach or just out and about.
A HOLE IN ONE
1½ ounces Johnnie Walker Red Label
1 tablespoon honey
3 ounces unsweetened iced tea
lemon wedge (for garnish)
Combine the Red Label, honey and iced tea. Stir and pour over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
1 ounce Johnnie Walker Black Label
½ ounce peach liqueur
¼ ounce fresh lemon juice
1½ ounces apple juice
Lemon peel (for garnish)
Combine Black Label, peach liqueur, lemon juice and apple juice. Mix and pour into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with lemon peel.
Johnnie Walker is available in liquor stores throughout the Hamptons.
